About this spot
The Church of Saint-Marie-Madeleine is a Catholic church on Place Madeleine in the 8th arrondissement. It was planned by Louis XV as the focal point of the new Rue Royal, leading to the new Place Louis XV, now Place de la Concorde. Napoleon Bonaparte had it redesigned in the Neoclassical style to become a monument to the glory of his armies. The building is surrounded on all four sides by Corinthian style columns. The interior is known for its frescoes on the domed ceiling, and monumental sculpture by François Rude, Charles Marochetti and other prominent 19th-c French artists.
