What people are saying:

I really love this church! Although it is not as famous as Notre-Dame, I find it beautiful and love how the steps are covered in flowers during the spring/summer. I often grab a sandwich and eat it on the steps, as you have a view down Rue Royale and onto Place de la Concorde. Entrance is free so in the summer it's a good place to cool off.

    Hellenic style

    The church gives a special vibe here. You can clearly witness the Greek style architecture from the outside. The church is beautiful and quite big!

Additional Information

Introduction

Constructed as a temple to glorify Napoleon and his army, Eglise de la Madeleine in Paris functions as a Roman Catholic church while arranging free concerts for the public. Construction began in 1764 but went through several setbacks. After the French Revolution, Napoleon re initiated construction, and the neo-Classical construct opened in 1842. The designers gathered inspiration from antique temples and encompassed the building with 52 Corinthian columns. Churchgoers celebrate mass daily, and free concerts occur twice a month on Sunday afternoons. The concerts incorporate baroque music, chamber music, symphony orchestras and organ recitals.
