Just happened upon this church while walking around Paris. I noticed the gargoyles and decided to take a closer look. Architecture of this church is fantastic both inside and out. Some of the nicest stained glass I've ever seen. Highly recommend.

Don't overlook Saint-Severin. It is a beautiful Gothic church and is one of the oldest in Paris. It will not be crowded. There is a wonderful warmth and brightness to the interior and the stained glass is superb. Everyone really has to go see Notre...More

I preferred this beautiful Gothic church to all the grandeur of say Notre Dame or Sainte Chapelle. There is something quietly serene about it in the middle of all that hustle and bustle outside. It has the most beautiful set of royal blue stained glass...More

Having just been to Notre dame and wandering around the streets we came across this beautiful church. So much more light in here than Notre dame. No crowds. Stunning.

Down a small street and a couple of blocks South of the Ile de la Cite is this historic church which dates back to the 11th century. Some really great architecture, this church is a real joy to gaze at.

Having been disappointed with the interior of Notre Dame which we found all a bit sombre, we stumbled upon Eglise St Severin. What a nice surprise. Excellent bright stained glass windows.

This church is located a couple blocks from Norte Dame in the Latin Quarter. It was a cold rainy day in Paris and Norte Dame was packed. We were in this church with maybe 4 other people. Not nearly the size of Norte Dame, but...More

We enjoyed the somewhat modern windows that were behind the Altar. It was a quiet peaceful space to reflect on.

The best church in the district... moody, atmospheric, yet full of the evidence of a vibrant spirituality and active ministry team. I loved the home made crib!
