Reviews

La Madeleine - a must see
"A wonderful church which is never as busy as Notre Dame. It's stunning from the outside and beautiful and peaceful inside. The best way of experiencing La Madeleine is going to one of the concerts they hold there. Classical music, great acoustics and an impressive setting - you can't beat it!"
Brad
Great classical concert, enchanting space!
Saw a classical concert here one night, the highlight of my entire week in Paris! A gorgeous setting with very accomplished classical stringed mini-orchestra. Highly recommend it!

La Madeleine Church

Place de la Madeleine, 75008 Paris

La Madeleine Church


The imposing Madeleine Church, located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, gave its name to this district of Paris. It is built in perspective of the Palais Bourbon (building that houses the National Assembly), which it faces on the other side of the Place de la Concorde.

In 1757, Louis XV ordered the construction of a new Madeleine Church, but following the Revolution, the work remained on hold. Then, in 1806, Napoleon I decided to build a temple to the glory of the soldiers of the Grande Armée. He commissioned the architect Pierre-Alexandre Vignon who razed the old church but kept its columns. He proposed a building reminiscent of Greek temples, with more than 50 Corinthian columns surrounding it. Unfortunately, the construction posed problems to the State and its construction was neglected in favor of the Arc de Triomphe. The Madeleine Church was returned to Catholic worship and the church was inaugurated in 1842 - its construction took 85 years!

In 1846, the church welcomed the great organ of Cavaillé-Coll and many organists succeeded one another at the keyboards of the instrument: Camille Saint-Saëns, Gabriel Fauré, etc. It is at the Madeleine Church that the funerals of famous artists such as Frédéric Chopin, Jacques Offenbach, Edith Piaf, Joséphine Baker and more recently Johnny Hallyday have been held. Since its construction, the church has become a hotspot for classical music concerts.
