Paris France

La Madeleine Church

Around the corner from the Opera Garnier is another Roman-esque edifice.  It looks like a court building or  a library, but indeed it is a church.  It’s meant to evoke the Pantheon, and in fact nearly became a library or a train station, before it was consecrated in 1842. The most fashionable Parisian weddings are held here.  Built in honor of St. Mary Magdalene and affiliated with the Benedictines.  Hours are 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. LG

Visit L’Ecluse for lunch after seeing Madeleine Church.
