Sadly, most people now know of this church due to its role in the book, The Da Vince Code. It is true that the Meridian Line starts from this very church, the signification of the line is debatable, and strongly refuted by those people related to the church.

Located near St Germain des Pres, this church is easy to access, and prominent against the nearby skyline. Sadly when I went to visit it throughout my year in Paris, restoration work was going on, so I never got the chance to see the whole of the beautiful facade...however, I am indeed looking forward to seeing it on one of my return visits to Paris.

The inside of the church is absolutely beautiful, especially the organ, as well as the back of the church! I would recommend going to see Saint Sulpice while wondering around the St Germain des Pres quarter!! It is definately worthwhile and the surroundings are pleasant and peaceful!
