☆ Conciergerie ☆
The Conciergerie was once a royal palace..
Imagine the enormous Salle des Gens d’Armes with two thousand persons sitting down to eat, and kitchens buzzing with kitchen boys working in an infernal heat..
Above all though, the Conciergerie was a prison up until the 19th century: the regicidal Ravaillac, Marie-Antoinette and many others, especially during the darker days of the French Revolution, spent their last days here..
