Some five years ago I made a post about the Saint-Sulpice Church and briefly mentioned the beautiful fountain in front of it. When I passed by the other day (night), I could not resist against taking a few pictures.
The “Fontaine Saint-Sulpice” was inaugurated in 1848. It was created by Louis Visconti, who has left a number of other remarkable works around Paris, including the Molière Monument (see previous post), but perhaps is especially known for the design of Napoleon’s tomb (see previous posts).
The four statues represent four French religious “orators” (Bousset, Fénelon, Fléchier, Massillon).
The pigeons seem to appreciate the monument for their night sleep.
At the moment the place houses also a nice carrousel (merry-go-round).
