Day 276: Something Beautiful—St. Sulpice

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

In Paris, our host Jean-Pol, sent us along the Rue Bonaparte with promises of several architecturally important churches. St. Sulpice was the first on his list. The cathedral is second only to Notre Dame as the largest church in Paris. Owning a storied history, it is most widely known today for its references in Dan Brown’s book, The DaVinci Code. The inside is magnificent but so is the courtyard outside. A great work of art in its own right and given to fantastic photographic angles of beauty even on grey days—a study in neutrals.
