The church of Saint-Sulpice in Saint-Sulpice-la-Pointe (Tarn department, Occitania, France) dates from the 14th century .

This church is known for its bell tower-wall or bell tower-keep 40 m high, construction of which began under the lordship of Gaston Fébus in 1381.

Furthermore, Saint-Sulpice is known for having held an ivory triptych, known as ” de Saint-Sulpice-du-Tarn”, which is dated to the fourth quarter of the 13th century and which has been part of the collections of the Cluny Museum in Paris since 1893.

The building is referenced in the Mérimée database and in the General Inventory of the Region Occitanie.

The Grand-Orgue de tribune, built in 1896 by Jean-Baptiste Puget, is one of the most beautiful in the region.

Featuring 26 stops spread over two keyboards and a pedal board, it was restored in 2015 by Franz Lefèvre.
