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.

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.

St.Sulpice is one of my favorite places to visit in Paris. It is a magnificent and beautiful church that transports you back in time hundreds of years. Most of the time you have the place to yourself to enjoy at your leasure. It is close enough to Notre Dame that it's easy to visit both on the same walk through... More

In a fashionable area, this imposing church adds a beautiful feel to the square. The fountain in front of it is also nice.

Hadn't planned on a visit here but once we came upon it we couldn't go past with out a visit. There is access around the side if you can't manage the stairs. The first thing that strikes you when you enter is the size of the church, it is enormous and according to the brochure provided for a small fee,... More

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.
