Conciergerie

  • Historic site and monument
  • Historic patrimony
  • Palace

Discover the exceptional gothic rooms of this medieval royal palace, which became a revolutionary court and Marie-Antoinette's prison.

From the medieval Palais de la Cité, the Salle des Gardes and the huge Salle des Gens d'Armes built under Philippe le Bel and the kitchens built under Jean le Bon remain. The kings of France left the palace at the end of the 14th century to settle in the Louvre and Vincennes. Judicial activity developed there, and prisons were built. The Conciergerie became one of the main places of detention during the French Revolution with the installation of the revolutionary court. Its most famous prisoner was Marie-Antoinette. A memorial chapel was built during the Restoration period on the site of her cell.
