Saint Sulpice – Paris

While in Paris last year, we revisited the church of St Sulpice, where you can see the gnomon that appears in Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code. The gnomon is like a very specialised sundial which shows the elevation of the sun at about noon each day. In the novel, the line across the floor of the church was placed there to help reveal the secret location of the Holy Grail.
