L'Église Sainte-Marie-Madeleine, or simply La Madeleine, is a church with a breath-taking presence in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. This Roman Catholic Church was first commissioned to be built in 1757, but because of delays, the foundation was cleared and rebuilt twice as designers and leaders tried to decide what purpose the building would serve. At one point it was even to be a commemorative temple to Napoleon’s army. It was finally completed in 1837 and consecrated as a church five years later. Today, parishioners still hold services at La Madeleine, and some of the most prolific weddings in Paris have taken place here. Come visit this breath-taking place for its historic importance or take in a morning service or night-time mass.
- Admire the building's neo-classical style, which was designed after the Maison Carrée at Nimes, the best preserved of all ancient Roman temples.
- Explore the Place de la Concorde, one of the major squares in Paris, which is home to the Obelisk of Luxor and two of Paris' most famous fountains.
- Visit and dine at Maxim's Paris on Rue Royale, a restaurant famous for its Art Nouveau décor.
Paris, France is served by Charles de Gaulle international airport. Hiring a car from the airport is one transport option, as is taking a taxi. However, Paris has an excellent public transportation system. The Metro subway is the fastest and easiest way to get around Paris, along with RER, buses, tramways, boat tours, and bike rentals. When taking the Metro, get off at the “Madeleine” stop. Paris also has buses that go to the area, so check the local bus schedule for times. Once there, you can walk to the church and other sites, or simple take a bicycle or hire a taxi. Most tourists rely on walking or bicycling for exploring around Madeleine.
