Castle Concierge

Paris, France
4.7 / 12
Former royal castle on the island of Cité, one of the oldest in Paris. It was built on the site of the fortress of the VI century, where the king of the Franks Clovis lived. Until the end of the XIV century, the French monarchs lived in the castle, but after the court moved to the Louvre, the Conciergerie was turned into a prison, which over the centuries was overgrown with dark stories. Thousands of prisoners went from here to the guillotine (including Queen Marie Antoinette).
