This fountain is in the middle of a square surrounded by some of the most fancy stores in Paris. Also very nice cafes and restaurants. Too bad it has little style or merit. Just OK.

St. Sulpice is a unique church for architecture but so is the fountain in front of it. The fountain reminds me a lot of the Fountain of the Innocents in Les Halles. Great feature to a great courtyard. Made for pictures.
