Conciergerie, Paris

3.6
An ancient medieval fortress and prison, Conciergerie features remarkable medieval royal architecture. This was the site of Marie Antoinette's imprisonment in the period leading up to her execution in 1793. Don't miss the clock tower, which is visible from the street and was cleaned in 2013: it is the oldest clock tower in Paris.

  • You should go here. Its beautiful, yet haunting. One can truly learn about the French Revolution here as well as see where prisoners such as Marie Antoinette and Robespierre were held. The art exhibition inside the Great Hall right now is pretty amazing too. Certainly glad we went. Its included on the Paris Pass. (Which you should also check out if you're travelling to Paris)
  • This historical building was a royal Palace until the 14 century... and then became a jail, its guillotine was used very heavily during the french revolution and now the tourists/visitors share the building with the Law Courts!! This very full "historical agenda" can be viewed most easily, especially during peak tourism periods by arranging [via a payment of 8.50 Euro] to skip the lines! A visit is especially of considerable interest to "history buffs"! I hope that this review has been helpful!
