Eglise de la Madeleine
The Eglise de la Madeleine is a 19th‐century Roman Catholic church that commands all eyes in its lovely location between the Place de la Concorde and the Palais Garnier in Paris. The construction process stretched over 80 years, as the building's plans — and those funding it — underwent many changes. Initially intended as Napoleon's tribute to his victorious army, the Neo‐Classical style, echoing that of an Ancient Roman temple, retains the immense standing columns of earlier churches on the site. Inside the Eglise de la Madeleine, one can admire beautiful Neo‐Byzantine mosaics, paintings and sculptures.

The Neo‐Classical architecture and impressive internal decorations create a perfect atmosphere for the classical concerts that take place in the church throughout the year. A magnificent pipe organ, considered to be one of the most impressive instruments in Paris in terms of its tonal beauty, plays its own part in the La Madeleine's musical life.
