The village lies along the Seine and the Haute-Seine canal, 7 km north of Troyes. It is crossed by the D619 and the Paris-Basel railway line, which is about to be electrified.

The commune is blessed with three historic monuments: a 12th/16th-century church in the shape of a Latin cross, boasting a Renaissance gallery and stained glass windows from the 16th, 19th and 20th centuries; a 17th-century château in the Louis XIII style, built on the site of a former stronghold; and a canal bridge decided by Napoleon during his visit to the département en route to Italy. Opened in 1845, this bridge spans the Seine, enabling barges to travel upstream to Paris. Decommissioned in 1957, it has been brought back to life by the greenway laid out by the Conseil départemental and the Communauté d'agglomération, enabling walkers to enjoy the peace and quiet and admire the flora and fauna.

The church has been frequented by eminent figures. For example, the revolutionary Georges Jacques Danton vacationed in Barberey when his uncle was vicar. The heart of Baron Bruslé de Valsuzenay, 1st prefect of Aube and former owner of the château, is enshrined in a black marble column in the church.

The ancestors of the Valton family, creators of Petit-Bateau underwear, lived in the commune and are buried there. They donated a stained-glass window to the church, and their workers in turn a statue.

The commune has 7 primary and nursery schools, a micro-crèche, a leisure center, a stadium, a tennis court, playgrounds for children and teenagers, a multi-purpose hall and a reading center.

Numerous associations offer their members a wide range of activities, including ADMR, Amicale des Pompiers, AS Barberey Cyclo, Association de Chasse, Association pour la Protection de la Nature et de l'Environnement, Atelier Créatif, Club Saint-Sulpice, Football Club Barberey, Gymnastique Volontaire, Amis des Arts (painting, sculpture), Loisirs, Rétro-danse, Section Ecole, Section Pêche, Section Petanque, Tennis Club, Union Musicale Auboise.

Barberey-Saint-Sulpice also boasts one of the department's largest shopping areas, with just over a hundred businesses and craftsmen. The area also boasts major infrastructure: the airport, the Troyes Champagne Métropole wastewater treatment plant, a silo and a hydroelectric plant, the latter on the site of an old mill.
