Saint Sulpice

is the second largest church in Paris.

The church was mostly completed in 1732, but the facade at west was not built until 1776

The references to the chuch in Dan Browns novel the da Vinci Code has brought hoards of tourists to the church who actually believes the story he tells about it is true.

This note has been on display in the church: "Contrary to fanciful allegations in a recent best-selling novel, this [the line in the floor] is not a vestige of a pagan temple. No such temple ever existed in this place. It was never called a Rose-Line. It does not coincide with the meridian traced through the middle of the Paris Observatory which serves as a reference for maps where longitudes are measured in degrees East or West of Paris. Please also note that the letters P and S in the small round windows at both ends of the transept refer to Peter and Sulpice, the patron saints of the church, and not an imaginary Priory of Sion."
