  • See one of the principal detention centers of the French Revolution, The Conciergerie, and the commemorative chapel of its most famous prisoner, Marie-Antoinette
  • Get priority entrance for two of Paris's major historical attractions in the Palais de la Cité, once the residence of the Kings of France until the 14th century

Description

When modern Paris has overwhelmed you with its boutiques, bicycles, and baguettes, step back in time at two of its most interesting and historical landmarks in medieval Palais de la Cité - once the residence of the Kings of France. Sainte Chappelle with its mesmerizing stained glass windows was home to Christ's Crown of Thorns, while the Conciergerie was home, or rather prison to Marie-Antoinette! This ticket gets you priority access to both.

See two stunning monuments from France's past - a 13th century church with brilliant stained glass windows, and a medieval royal palace that was formerly home to French royalty. This Priority Entrance ticket allows you to skip the lines at both venues. NOTE: All visitors need to pass through security checks.

Sainte-Chapelle

Standing proudly on the Ile de la Cite, this intimate chapel and UNESCO World Heritage site was consecrated on April 26, 1248. It was commissioned by King Louis IX, who wanted somewhere nice to house his collection of religious relics, including Christ’s Crown of Thorns.

This Gothic chapel is renowned for its collection of 15 gorgeous stained glass windows, depicting 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments - as well as a pane showing the relocation of the Relics to Paris, prominently featuring the church's patron King Louis. On a sunny day, the light streaming in through those windows makes you forgive every drop of rain that ever fell on Paris.

Conciergerie

This medieval royal palace was abandoned by the Kings of France at the end of the 14th century (settling in the Louvre and Vincennes held more appeal), at which point it became a prison and revolutionary tribunal. It was one of the principal places of detention throughout the French Revolution (when it was known as "the antechamber to the guillotine").

That statement was certainly true in the case of its most famous resident, former Queen Marie Antoinette. As you wander the Salle des Gardes (Guards Room) and the immense Salle des Gens d'armes (Hall of the Soldiers) consider how she must have felt being imprisoned here. Her commemorative chapel was erected on the site of her cell in the renovation.
