Eglise de la Madeleine
This neo-Roman structure (1806-1842) was originally meant to be an imperial pantheon, but now houses an actual parish church featuring, outside its religious services, organ recitals and various sacred and baroque music concerts, notably on Sundays with free concerts at 4p twice a month, and other chamber music concerts and symphony orchestras.
I was never inside before and we decided to visit late ,in the evenning;its so beautiful peaceful,and although it is very big,its also hospitable.
we spent there 1 hour,that went really quickly.
Inside we had the feeling ,to be realy away
from the madnning Paris traffic and crowded trottoirs...
It is really a pity that so many tourists dont really stop there tosee and enjoy this amazing Church.
Me & my Husband we are looking forward to go back to ++LA MADELAINE IN PARIS++
This is a beautiful church with excellent lighting and impressive architecture.
Surrounded by an extremely busy traffic intersection, this church captivates and delivers beautifully.
The scale of the church is massive, offset by some delicate columns and supports.
There are many statues. Not big for stained glass fans.
