Meet your guide outside the metro stop Cité ( L4)
We will start our visit by discovering the Conciergerie from outside, located within the walls of the Palais de Justice today. We will observe the famous clock tower and its sundial dating from 1585. We will then enter the monument to discover the medieval rooms of impressive proportions, such as the hall of the “gens d’armes”, which is the largest medieval hall still standing in Europe. Nicknamed “the antechamber of the guillotine” during the Revolution, we will also visit the cells formerly reserved for the “enemies of the Republic” thanks to the reconstitutions of the old prison rooms. We will also visit the chapel dedicated to Marie Antoinette on the site of her incarceration.
A unique visit awaits you in this Monument, mostly unknown but emblematic of the History of France!
