Although Saint-Sulpice seems diminutive compared to Notre Dame, it is only slightly smaller. It is actually Paris’ second largest church. Its Roman roots date back to the 13th
Century but the bulk of the construction and renovations were done much later in the early 1600’s. A new sanctuary, ambulatory, transept, portal and chapels were added on in the latter part of the 17th
Century and into the 18th
Often overlooked for the more popular churches like Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur, its claim to fame is that Saint-Sulpice is home to the best organ music in Paris. People flock from all over to see and hear the organ that is one of the greatest in all of Europe.
