Galerie de la Madeleine, the haunt of luxury boutiques

The Galerie de la Madeleine is a small covered shopping arcade (53m long by 4m wide) that connects no9 Place de la Madeleine to no30 rue Boissy d'Anglas.

In the early 1840s, the Passage Jouffroy Company (which developed the Passage Jouffroy and Passage Verdeau on the Grands Boulevards) bought the section of Place de la Madeleine that backed on rue Boissy d'Anglas.

The architect Theodore Charpentier drew the plans and the Galerie de la Madeleine was inaugurated in 1845.

The main entrance, on the square, faces the Madeleine Church.

It cuts through the facade of an affluent building  adorned with a wealth of sculptures and friezes.

Jean-Baptiste Klagman sculpted the two caryatids that frame its entrance.

Several two-slope glass roofs protects this small shopping arcade exclusively lined with high-end retailer boutiques and designer shops.

If you're a foodie, you'll know that the gallery is also home to the prestigious Restaurant Lucas-Carton.

The establishment has indeed retained its Art Nouveau decor attributed to Louis Marjorelle (one of the founders of the School of Nancy) as well as its bronze sculpted by Louis Galli.

La Galerie de la Madeleine is with no doubt to the image of its surrounding; affluent and prestigious.
