LA MADELEINE - Paris

At the end of the rue Royal can be found the Madeleine square with its unmistakable Greek temple form. The area dates back to the XIXth century and owes its classic architecture and wide avenues to the genius of the Baron Haussmann. Still a site for societies wedding and funerals, a flower market that is held around the church from Tuesday to Friday.

Started in 1764 during the reign of Louis XV, and designed by Constant d'Ivry using plans based on the St-Louis-des-Invalide Church, it was razed by a second architect to who favored a design modeled after the Panthéon. However this second design was not well accepted either, and all work ceased between 1790 and 1806.

In 1814, Louis XVIII confirmed that the Madeleine should be a church, but in 1837 it was nearly selected to be the first railway station of Paris. Finally in 1842 it was consecrated as a church.

And, just outside the Madeleine, along the east side , you can find every day except Monday, a beautiful flower market. Also, a luxurious Art Nouveau loo by the metro at the junction of place and boulevard de la Madeleine. But the greatest appeal of place de la Madeleine is the famous "Fauchon"delicatessen shop, in the northeast corner. And, down the west side for rich gourmets and window-gazers you'll find the smaller Hédiard's, as well as caviar, truffle and spirit specialists.
