My mother being quite religious had to come here as we were holidaying in Paris for a few days. It was lovely. The service in such an iconic building was a treat she will never forget quickly.

This very historic church was founded almost 10 centuries ago!! It is designated as a "French Historic" monument... and, looks a lot like a "Roman Temple"! It is easily accessible by the "PARIS METRO" [Madeleine], and is north of "Place de la Concorde". Definitely worth...More

Was on way to Opera Garnier and decided to take a detour and see this church. So glad we did. Very beautiful architecturally. Lovely place to just sit and contemplate.

Very cool building, unfortunately didn't get to go inside but it's a stunning piece of architecture. I wouldn't go out of the way to see it but it's still quite insane how people back then could build something like this.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
