The Church of St. Severin (French: Église Saint-Séverin) is a Roman Catholic church, located in the Latin Quarter of Paris, France.



Five interesting facts about the Church of St. Severin:

  • Its bells include the oldest one remaining in Paris, cast in 1412.
  • The Gothic stained-glass windows of the chancel are intact and apparently date from the 15th century.
  • The impressive organ, built by Jean Ferrand in the 18th century, turns the church into a major centre of Sacred Music.
