    A true gem
    This is a truly incredible church. A glorious mixture of old and new: some of the stained-glass windows are stylishly contemporary, whereas others are older. It has a lovely cosy feel despite being quite big. I was lucky enough to have some time on the great organ (with permission), which was absolutely fabulous.

    Undoubtedly worth visiting if you are in the Latin Quarter
    The church was constructed in the 13th century and then rebuilt in the 15th and the 17th. The church is really interesting and has special spirit of past centuries. It also has truly beautiful stained glass windows. Many of them are dated in the 15th century. Some of them are new. But all of them are more then impressive!! Don’t miss the church if you are walking in the Latin Quarter!!

    Church in the Latin quarter
    Medieval church in the Latin Quarter of Paris. The gargoyles on the exterior are fun to see. Inside, Gothic architecture abounds. The church hosts concerts (sometimes free) so it's possible you may stumble into one during your visit.

Saint-Severin is located not very far from the busiest areas of Paris and perhaps for that reason easily overlooked. It has nice garden surroundings. The brightly colored widows makes for a spectacular impression of the interior.

The Church of Saint-Séverin is a Roman Catholic church located in the Latin Quarter.

It was constructed in 1230 then damaged by fire and rebuilt in Gothic style in the 15-17th century.

It is one of the oldest churches remaining in the left bank.

Nothing special to look at but is historically significant.

Well maintained 12 century in the Latin Quarter, close to the Seine. Worth a look. Entry is free and there are many eateries and shops adjacent. A nice job has been done to restore and maintain the interior of the church, and it's a welcome break on hot days, and cold days.

A beautiful spot which is worth a stroll through, whilst there many people were just sitting and enjoying the moment. It is one of the oldest churches of the area. Don't forget to admire the stunning organ above the entry area inside the church. Breathtaking.
If you're thing to visit the Latin Quarter which you should, ensure you stop here.
Side note is there is an abunof cafés surrounding this impressive building

Eglise Saint-Severin is quite an imposing building. We came across it while wandering around the streets of the Latin Quarter. The architecture is spectacular and it is just as good inside. Worth a visit.

A less visited place than many of the better known churches, but certainly worth a look if you are in the area. Lovely Gothic arches and stained glass windows on the inside.

A wonderful church in a fabulous neighborhood in a beautiful city. That should be enough. Still, there is something special about the St. Severin: it is majestic to be sure but intimate and down to earth at the same time. It fits in so well with the surrounding neighborhood as to be almost inseparable from it. There is little of the hustle and bustle of churches like Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur which are perpetually awash with bus tourists, wielders of selfie sticks and absent minded gawkers. There are rarely any crowds at St Severin even though the stained glass is awesome and the paintings and chapels delightful. In any other city, the St Severin would be a top attraction; alas, in Paris, it is just another beautiful historic edifice. Nonetheless, it is an essential part of any itinerary in the Latin Quarter; it makes for an nice accompaniment to a visit to the medieval museum Cluny which is a few minutes walk to the south.

We wouldn't have found this gem had we not stayed a few blocks away. On our way to our favorite cafe, we would pass by this little church. After passing it for a couple of times, we decided to go in for a peek. It is small ,but,impressive. The architecture was beautiful and coupled with the silence..it was really something. We once tried sitting in while a mass was going on and it was such an experience. If you are visiting the Latin quarter (which you should), drop by this little gem..you could do this the same day you visit Notre dame (which is just a few blocks away).
