St-Severin, Paris
(3.9/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Named after Séverin of Paris, a devout hermit who lived on the banks of the River Seine during the first half of the fifth century, St-Severin sprang up over his tomb in the 13th century. Over the years, priests commissioned several additions to the Gothic church, offering visitors a kind of tour through architectural history. Today, the site boasts the oldest bell in Paris, cast in 1412. It's also known for its flamboyant rose window above the west entrance, as well as several other ancient stained-glass windows. Be sure to see the church's unusual pillar, crafted to look like a palm tree. Plan to visit St-Severin during your Paris vacation using our convenient Paris vacation route planner.
