Saint-Sulpice

OK, I admit it. The only reason I went to Saint-Sulpice was because of The Da Vinci Code. As per the movie, the Church of Saint-Sulpice was built on the “Rose Line” or the world’s first prime meridian. But in fact, the Paris Meridian doesn’t pass the Church of Saint-Sulpice at all. There is a meridian line that passes through the church but it is to determine the winter solstice when the sun rays hit the obelisk in the corner of the church. It is absolutely fascinating! The church itself is the second largest church in Paris after Notre-Dame. The interiors are gorgeous. It is much more peaceful and less touristy than the Notre-Dame. I spent hours in here, just siting on one of the chairs and admiring it.

“It is here, in Paris, Teacher. It hides beneath the Rose in Saint-Sulpice”

“You will go forth, Silas”
