Église Saint-Séverin



Église Saint-Séverin


From the ancient windows of the 14th century to seven contemporary abstract windows of the 20th century, Saint-Séverin is a study of contrasts.  The twisted pillars resemble palm trees, and are a fascinating feat of architecture and design, added in 1489.
