With the fountain out front and the nuns walking the grounds, I have to say that Saint Sulpice was one of my favorite churches. A lot less mainstream that Notre Dame but seriously worth it. Right in the middle of the Saint Germain neighborhood. Overwhelming beauty and history.

I just love this fountain in spring or summer, it's in a nice surrounding near the Luxembourg park and where you can find many shops and the famous Pierre Hermé. Be sure to have and ice cream by the fountain on a sunny day 😀

Second in size only to Notre Dame Cathedral in the Paris area. Magnificent architecture inside and out. Much history here. The pipe organ is renowned as one of the best in the world. And, the position of Organ Master is one of the most sought after positions for an organist. On Sunday after the 1100h Mass an organ concert is... More

It is an interesting designed church from outside. The great things about this church are the paintings in the chapels, the high ceilings, the chapel of the virgin Mary with its dome and fresco, and a great wooden organ. At the moment there is a nativity scene. There is some good stone work, though some parts of the chapels need... More

First, The Church of St. Sulpice contains a grand pipe organ. If possible, check to see if the Sunday Organ Concert will be held while you are in Paris. if so, this is a wonderful experience. One of the best organs in Europe, and a free concert. I would also suggest a visit during the day. You can see the... More

It's something you will remember for a long time. Not crowded as not as famous as the other cathedrals. We found it a great place to visit.

Most people visit this square because of the church, I guess. But, if this isn't your cup of tea, there's also a lot of shops to browse and other things to see.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
