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.

  • 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.

  • Strolling through the Latin Quarter I arrived in Saint-Séverin, first admired outside the building and then dared me to enter. This is one of the oldest churches of Paris, and its Gothic architecture is a beauty. The stained glass windows, if you have good sight, also worth spend some time to see them.
