"Madeleine" La Madeleine Tip by davequ

La Madeleine, Paris: 55 reviews and 134 photos


I always wanted to get the chance on a sunny day to take a picture of the Madeleine, the church on rue Royale that looks like a Greek temple.

Though a beautiful building, if you are on a tight schedule or a short stay in Paris, I don't recommend taking the time to go inside. The architecture of the outside is imo the best part.
But here's a site with quite a bit of info and history: Paroisse de la Madeleine

Address: Place de la Madeleine - 75008
Directions: Metro Madeleine. If you do want to check out the inside, it supposedly is open 7:00 am - 7:00 pm monday-saturday, 8:00 am - 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm sunday
