Rebuilt in the 13th century in the early Gothic style Église Sainte-Madeleine is the oldest church in Troyes. The Renaissance tower and the portal to the old cemetery date from 1525, while the nave was restored in the 19th century. You can see one of the few preservations of a Renaissance rood screen, which looks like stone lace by sculptor Jehan Gailde. The ambulatory has beautiful stained glass windows from the 16th century including the colorful Tree of Jesse and many 16th-century statues including St. Sebastian and St. Marta, masterpieces by sculptor Chaource. More statues includes the sculpture of the Virgin and Child and the sculpture depicting the baptism of Saint Augustine. You van also view incredibly intact paintings, including "The Holy Family" and "Jesus with Martha and Mary of Bethany."

A beautiful church that should form part of any visit to Troyes. The rood screen in particular made me enjoy the visit but the wood carvings were excellent too! more »
A lovely well tendered church. We visited on a lovely sunny day and it was nice just to sit and enjoy the peace, quiet and admire the beautiful interior. more »

Such a beautiful old church. When we were there we were the only people in the church. Just as beautiful as the famous churches in Paris but no crowds at all.
