After the executions of the French monarchs Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, their remains were buried at the Madeleine Cemetery. The Chapelle Expiatoire, constructed in the early 19th Century, is built upon the grounds of that former cemetery. Now it is a grand monument to the king and queen and victims of the French Revolution. The site includes a Greco-Roman necropolis, as well as a hall done in the Neo-Classic style. It's a soothing respite from the bustle of Boulevard Haussman, and a must-see for history buffs.
