Conciergerie, Paris

3.6
#18 of 96 in Historic Sites in Paris
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.

    Who would like to learn about the French Revolution, is right here. It be on panels (in English and French) explains the background to the history of the revolution and illustrates the conditions of detention of the prisoners. The building also served as a castle, so it serves as a good example of secular Gothic architecture, if little is preserved. Marie Antoinette cell is also there. Conclusion: positively surprised

    Interesting for the building, and the exhibition tracing the history of the Revolution, and Justice.

    The visit makes sense when interested in topics such as the revolution (revolutionary tribunal) and the last days of the Queen. At that time there so you will see not a "simple rooms cemented". C is absolutely to see for a passionate history. You you take in a monument that housed the criminal tribunal of the revolutionaries, which was trodden by the Queen Marie-Antoinette. You can see the austerity of the cells, the objects of the guards, the chapel dedicated to the royal couple with the objects of the Queen as she kept during his detention (shirt worn the last day of his voe for example), the Court in which she was doing his walks. Throughout your visit you can grow you thanks to present panels in the rooms, on the underside of the revolution or the lives of prisoners and of Marie Antoinette to the Concierge. There is especially a fun room where on a touchscreen you can search your surnames to see if one of your (possible) ancestors n would have not been locked up or executed and the reason for such a punishment.

    Related to Paris' history as a Revolutionary Tribunal, this medieval royal palace is a great parisian heritage filled with cultural artifacts. Go see it!

    Well worth a visit - amazing architecture and the location of Marie Antoinette's final imprisonment. Use a ParisLib pass and skip the ticket lines

    There was interesting information about the revaluation but might not b worth 9 euro

    O.k. to visit if you have some time to kill (unlikely in Paris). Just a huge, empty hall and empty Kitchen to see. Marie Antoinette's prison cell was not available due to apparent renovations etc...

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
