Paris, France

The Church of St. Mary Magdalene is a Roman Catholic church, located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, the capital of France.

The church was built in 1806–1828, in the style of the Neo-Classical by the French architect Pierre-Alexandre Vignon (1763–1828). Its size is 108 m (354 ft) long, 43 m (141 ft) wide, and the columns are 20 m (65.6 ft) high.

It was designed to look like a temple, commemorating Napoleon victories. After the fall of Napoleon, King Louis XVIII made the decision that it would become a church. It was ceremonially consecrated in 1842.
