The Place de la Madeleine is where the Eglise de la Madeleine is situated. The Place itself is pretty, but quite bsy. Lots of shops and restaurants. The Church is beautiful and as with many of the other popular tourist attracting sites in Paris, this place also gets quite full. Worth visiting. The Place dela Madeleine is essentially between Palais... More

This is a former building put up by Napoleon to honor himself. After his fall from grace, the building was turned into a church dedicated to Mary Magdalene. The ceiling is impressive. There is also an altar to Mother Teresa.

A must see if you love churches, this is a beautiful church and it's near the Opera House. Spend about an 90 inside church, then cross street for Opera House or enjoy shopping

The area is an excellent place to stay as it is so centrally located. Good area to watch people, shop, and eat.

This is a roman style building which has been transformed into a Catholic church. Its handpainted murals are breathtaking. When I first visited it years ago it inspired me to name my daughter Madeleine in remembrance of this beautiful and holy place.

Somehow it never gets tiring to see the architecture and paintings. I think this is not as grand as Notre Dame but also worth seeing!

La Place de la Madeleine is very busy during the day, but at night, it because something else completely. Just a beautiful area of Paris for another night walk. While you are there, take the time to visit La Madeleine church.

We watched the Bastille Day celebrations from here, which was a bit out of the way of most of the crowds, but still great atmosphere

There are many good stores at the Place de Madeleine. For food, Fauchon has become an iconic landmark in gastronomy and the macaroons there are the best. There are other food stores and a very good crystal store, which is Baccarat. Even if you do not plan to buy any crystal, enter this store and see the new things that... More

This is a lively square with many options of things to do and the beautiful church of Madeleine in the center. Many restaurants, cafes and shops are situated within this square and in the surrounding neighborhood.
