Today after school I went to see St-Sulspice. Like La Madeleine, I had never seen this church either. The picture I had in my head of it was from the movie The DaVinci Code. For some reason I thought I remembered it being small. Wrong. This church is HUGE!

Unfortunately, like so many buildings in Europe, one side of the church is almost entirely covered in scaffolding under renovation. Outside the church in the Place Saint Sulspice is a beautiful fountain.

Construction on St-Sulspice began in 1646, but it wasn't completed until nearly the end of the 1700s. There is an absolutely gorgeous alter inside along with one of the largest pipe organs in the world.
