Short description

Customers rating : (?) - The Galerie de la Madeleine, named after the nearby church, spans 53 meters in length and 4 meters in width.

The passage takes its name from its proximity to the Madeleine church. Size length 53 m - width 4 m

Construction of the Galerie de la Madeleine

The opening of the Galerie de la Madeleine is linked to the opening of the Place de la Madeleine and the construction of its church.
The Passage Jouffroy company acquired the land at the corner of rue Boissy d'Anglas.

Begun in 1840 and completed in 1845, it was inaugurated in 1846, after the Place de la Madeleine had been enlarged.

The architect and Art Nouveau

Designed by architect Théodore Charpentier, this monumental building stands out from earlier examples.

The two facades are very different: the Madeleine facade features two beautiful caryatids by Klagman framing the beautiful porch of the main entrance from Place de la Madeleine. On the rue Boissy-d'Anglas side, the 1700 building is housed in the gallery: the rounded porch fits harmoniously into the beautiful double facade of carved wood, forming a loggia at the end of the gallery and dating back to the gallery's origin.

The glass roof, divided into panels, is supported by elegant buttresses. The gallery is a must-see in the neighborhood.

Chic and classy

Galerie de la Madeleine shines with its classy ambience. It's worth noting that it's home to a number of luxury addresses (in fashion and accessories). Luxury for the taste buds too, with the Lucas Carton restaurant offering its delicate gastronomy (entrance Plce de la Madeleine) and its little brother Le petit Lucas Carton, whose enrée is in the gallery itself.

Their address is Galerie de la Madeleine

These are the luxury shops in the Galerie de la Madeleine: Blanc et Vert (Café Restaurant), Giambattista Valli (Haute Couture), InLuce (Visual Merchandising Agency), La Golconde (Jewellery), Le Petit Lucas (Restaurant subsidiary of Lucas-Carton), TNC PARIS (Accessories Boutique), Yves Delorme (Linde de Maison).

The most famous establishment was undoubtedly the Lucas-Carton restaurant, located at the entrance on the Place de la Madeleine side. It boasts an extraordinary Art Nouveau décor, attributed to Louis Majorelle and designed by Etienne de Gournevitch in 1904-1905.

Despite its exceptional location, the Galerie de la Madeleine never saw the light of day.
