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.

  • Well worth the visit to learn the history of the oldest royal palace in Paris that became the prison where Marie Antoinette spent her last days. Prison cells and equipment still in place. Impressive building. Good videos, audio guides and explanation panels available.
  • Small, but quite interesting! At entrance I got a tablet as a guide. I liked that a lot. Worth to visit this old place full of history. I liked to see the prison cell of Marie Antoinette. I really suggest to buy Paris Museums Card.
