Explore the exceptional Gothic rooms of this medieval Royal palace, later a Revolutionary court and the prison of Marie-Antoinette.
The Salle des Gardes (Guards Room) and the immense Salle des Gens d’armes (Hall of the soldiers), built under Philippe le Bel, ‘Philip the Fair’, still remain from the days of the medieval palace, as do the kitchens built under Jean le Bon ‘John the Good’. The Kings of France abandoned the palace at the end of the 14th century to settle in the Louvre and in Vincennes. It then took on a judicial role, and part of the palace was converted into prison cells. The Conciergerie became one of the principal places of detention during the French Revolution, with the installation of the Revolutionary Court. Its most famous prisoner was Marie-Antoinette. During the Restoration, a commemorative chapel was erected on the site of her cell.
