Église Saint-Séverin

Built and rebuilt over the centuries, this 13th-15th century Flamboyant Gothic church shows at its height the criss-crossed and ribbed vaulting which frame the stained glass windows of the same period.

Although I have been here four or five times, 
I discover another secret on each visit.  
The history of the church site began in the 5th century 
and continued through fires, wars, and an abundance of burials.  

The organ, seen in the background, was built by Jean Ferrand (1748) 
and has a history as rich as the church itself.

bon dimanche
