This important vestige of the Capetian Palace is a remarkable testimony of the civil architecture of the 14th century : the Guard room and the kitchens. 

La Conciergerie

The lower part of the Palace was mainly turned into a jail during the 15th century ; you may visit the dungeons (in particular Queen Marie-Antoinette’s) and also discover memories of the French Revolution. The medieval aspect of the Conciergerie with the only remaining visible ancient capetian palace have been recently restored and opened to the public since January 11th 2000.
