St-Severin, Paris

(3.9/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • The Church of San Severino in Paris looks over almost by accident in the middle of the crush of tourists and foreign restaurants and shops at baraonda doke which characterise this part of the Latin quarter. Yet it is a church must overlook, very old and pure Gothic style; the exterior, elaborate but gloomy and ferrigno, isn't particularly flashy but the inside is of great charm, not huge but with five naves and two walkers. Particularly appreciated the quantity and quality of the glass Windows and column, including tortile forest in the middle of walking frames. Paris is also one of the most atheists in the world keeps quiet little corners of spirituality as this church.

  • Well close to the Sorbonne, this Lutheran Church is pretty cute and the story of his rise interesting. The stained glass Windows are beautiful. Worth visiting.

  • This Gothic church is located in the Latin quarter in Paris. It was built between the 13th and the 15th century. It is classified historical monuments in 1862. Inside you can admire an incredible number of superb stained-glass windows and old murals. A very nice visit.
