  • Take a look at the former prison cells - and today's chapel - dedicated to the prison's most famous resident: Marie Antoinette

Description

Get priority admission to this former palace and riverside prison on the medieval Île de la Cité in Paris. You will see prison cells from the French Revolution (including the cell of Queen Marie Antoinette), and the Gothic Salle des Gens d'Armes which is the largest medieval hall still in existence in Europe.

History is immersed in the thick walls of this incredible gothic building. Built in the 14th century as a royal palace, this place became a prison after the royal family moved to the Louvre and the Vincennes. During the French Revolution it was given the cool nickname "the antechamber to the guillotine".

People accused of being an enemy of the Republic stood before a tribunal in the Great Hall, where they were either acquitted or found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. When they were sentenced, they had to await their fate in one of the nearby cells. The wealthy paid for relatively comfortable rooms with beds, while the citizens were crammed into plague-affected hay-bed cells.

The most famous resident during his time as a prison was Queen Marie Antoinette. After the restoration her cell was converted into a chapel. A visit to their prison is one of the highlights of a trip to this famous building.

Other attractions include the largest medieval hall in Europe, the Salle des Gens d'Armes, and the dreaded Bonbec Tower, which served as a torture chamber. The name "bonbec" refers to the fact that prisoners who came here would confess everything they were accused of (bon means "good" and bec means "mouth").

A visit to the Conciergerie is a fascinating insight into the eventful history of the French Republic. And unlike many of its inhabitants, you may go later!
