Conciergerie, Paris

Historic Site · Landmark
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.

  • The Conciergerie is an interesting building with quite a long, dark and intriguing history. It dates to the early Middle Ages and was part of the royal palace, the Palais de la Cité. During the...  more »
  • A Medieval Royal Residence with Gothic halls, used as a prison in the revolution. A place full of stories and mysteries that reminds the tragic end of a famous Empress.  more »

  • Amazing exhibition, loved every piece of it. A must see if you are a history fan. Everything explained in French, mainly in English too, some of them even in German. To rent an iPad for guided tour available on other languages as well, and not wasted money at all. Look around and have fun! :)
  • Amazing experiences. Loved to learn more about the French Revolution history and see how this place was transformed during different centuries. Worth a visit.
  • It’s a beautiful building and the last “home” (prison) of Marie-Antoinette. I recommend to take a combined ticket with the Sainte-Chapelle next door. It will provide you a fast-track entrance and cost you €15 for both monuments (or free every first Sunday of every month).
  • Compare to the Saint Chappel, it doesn't have much breath taking stained glass, but it does have a really detailed exhibition of the French revolution. It was very well demonstrate and very informative. The basement's arches are pretty cool for pictures, but you should really come for the history.
  • This is a very interesting place, if you want to know the French Revolution history it has the detailed exhibition of it, they have placards with information or stories of people imprisoned here like the last queen of France Maria Antonietta, this is located at the West part of " Island of the City ".I recommend to buy the combo tickets ( Saint Chapelle + Conciergerie ). This place is worth visiting.
