Saint-Sulpice, at 113 metres long, 58 metres in width and 34 metres tall, is only slightly smaller than Notre-Dame making it the second largest church in Paris.  Peter (Peter's Paris), my husband and I made a visit on the afternoon of Palm Sunday this year and found what seemed to be thousands of chairs for the congregation.  There were several women selling palm fronds on the front steps, and the church seemed alive with the activities of the day.


This church has been the center of events in history and in recent years became a tourist destination due to  Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code.  There is much of interest here and I will bring you back again.
