  • A place that should not be in this vivitar city. A temple other than usual for its architecture, reminds of Greek or Roman buildings, and already inside shows the Majesty of Catholic architecture but not overloaded of paintings and statues. located a few meters from the place de la Concorde in a beautiful neighborhood and many people circulating.

  • This church was designed as a Roman Temple tribute to Napoleon. IT's a magnificent inside and out. I attended Saturday mass here and the organ was also impressive. 
  • The Church of Madeleine, despite being a Catholic, does not compare to the construction of other churches. It is open to visitors. daily masses are held and there is no restriction of public. You should just be aware of the times, as they may vary according to the day of the week. Is close to the place de la Concorde.
