Magnifique positioning

why magnifique come

after noun in « endroits magnifiques »

but before noun in « magnifiques gâteaux »

This relates to:
Using ''de / d' '' instead of 'des' in front of adjectives preceding nouns (partitive article) -

Usually magnifique is placed after the noun but it may also come first for emphasis.

Hi Nabeel,


Magnifique is one adjective that can be used before or after the noun but without its meaning being affected. 


Hope this helps!
