St Sulpice on Lake Geneva
St Sulpice is mostly visited to see and photograph it small Romanesque church — the oldest in the Lake Geneva region and one of the oldest in Switzerland. The former abbey church was reduced to only its apse and crossing following the collapse of the nave in the early 15th century. However, the Romanesque apse still absolutely looks the part, especially when photos are taken from the lake side.
Other sights in this upmarket community are fairly low-key but enjoy beautiful views of Lake Geneva and the French Alps from both the lakefront and higher up. St Sulpice is the easiest reach by car or bicycle — it is possible to cycle around Lake Geneva — but public transportation is also available. It is also a pleasant hike of around 90 minutes, mostly along the lakefront, to either Morges or Lausanne.
