The Conciergerie

September 5, 2012

Between Notre Dame and our next planned destination (Sainte Chapelle) we found the Conciergerie.  This is a very ancient palace and has in its life been a palace, prison etc etc and most notably housed Marie Antoinette just before her execution.  They have also recreated her cell within the walls.  A very atmospheric place!
