Conciergerie

Local nameConciergerie
LocationParis, France

Conciergerie is a former royal palace, built in Gothic style, that once served as a prison during the French Revolution. The most notable prisoner here was Marie Antoinette - the last Queen of France before the French Revolution. She got convicted of high treason and was executed in a way that was very popular at that time - by guillotine. Her former cell was converted into a chapel. The road led directly to the guillotine from here.

This establishment is perfect for history lovers. There aren't many exhibits here, but you are going to learn a lot through reading and listening about the times of The Reign of Terror, the Restoration of the Bourbons, but you are also going to hear about the prisons during Middle Ages, where the wealthy could afford a cell which was rather luxurious (books, writing supplies, light), and the poorest were left to rot and die in the darkness with vermin.

The closest metro stations are Châtelet (lines 1, 7, 11 and 14) and Saint-Michel or Cité (line 4).
