Église St-Sulpice Review
Dubbed the Cathedral of the Rive Gauche, this enormous 17th-century Baroque church has entertained some unlikely christenings—among them those of the Marquis de Sade and Charles Baudelaire—as well as the nuptials of novelist Victor Hugo. The church's most recent appearance was a supporting role in the best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code, and it now draws scores of tourists to its obelisk (part of a gnomon, a device used to determine exact time and the equinoxes, built in the 1730s). The 18th-century facade was never finished, and its unequal towers add a playful touch to an otherwise sober design. There are two magnificent Delacroix frescoes in a chapel to the right of the entrance.
