Situated in the centre of Paris, the Palais de la Cité was a royal residence from the 10th to the 14th centuries. Its Conciergerie, standing proudly on the Quai de l'Horloge, is an essential destination for all who love the exciting world of the past. Discover the unknown and unusual secrets of the Conciergerie by wandering its history-steeped gothic halls. Called, with gallows humour, the Antechamber of the Guillotine during the French Revolution, the Conciergerie was the final residence of Marie Antoinette of Austria, who was held prisoner here before being beheaded in the Place de la Concorde on October 16th, 1793.
