La Madeleine, Paris: 55 reviews and 134 photos
Dedicated to St Mary Magdalene, La Madeleine has an impressive Greek temple-like facade.
The construction of the church passed through different stages, not without problems, until 1806 when Napoleon entrusted Vignon to transform it into a "Temple of Glory" for the Great Army.
In 1842 the church was finally consecrated.
The exterior is dominated by the tall 52 Corinthian columns and the imposing steps.
The interior is on a single nave with a vestibule and an apsed chancel.
From the entrance a beautiful view of rue Royale to Place de la Concorde with its obelisk from Luxor can be admired.
