A Roman Catholic church dedicated to Mary Magdalene (fr: Marie Madeleine). Originally intended to be a monument to the glory of Napoleon's Grande Armée, the building is designed in the neo-Classical style and inspired by the Panthéon. The magnificent church was completed in 1842 and is surrounded by 52 Corinthian columns, each 20 meters tall, and bronze doors covered with bas reliefs depicting the Ten Commandments.
