Église Saint-Sulpice
This ravishing church is the second largest in Paris, being only slightly smaller than Notre Dame, and it is certainly one of the city’s prettiest. Opera lovers will recognize it as the setting for part of Massenet’s work “Manon”, although it’s unfortunately better known for an appearance in that most horrid and insipid of all recent novels “The DaVinci Code”. But I digress... Besides the frescos, statues, and architectural details, Saint-Sulpice has another real treat for fans of the visual arts. Several powerful and dramatic Delacroix murals are on display in a side chapel and they are positively breathtaking.
