Take a guided tour of the Conciergerie, the former Palace of the Kings of France between the 10th and 14th Century and a former prison until 1918. Our expert guide will give you a tour of the splendid Gothic palace. See the Salle des Gardes (Guards Room) and the huge Salle des Gens d'armes (Hall of the soldiers), built under King Philip the Fair, still remain from the days of the medieval palace, as do the kitchens built under King John the Good. 
Learn about the history of the Conciergerie, from a Royal residence to a Palace of Justice. 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.
Discover how the revolutionary prison looked like. 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.
