Built by Philip the Fair, the Palais de la Cité was the first residence in Paris of the Kings of France. On Ile de la Cité, there are exceptional Gothic rooms from the first royal palace in Paris and reconstructed prison cells from the time of the French Revolution.
The current monument contains remains from the palace of the House of Capet. In the 14th century, Charles V moved out of the palace but decided to house his law courts here. A concierge was appointed and given policing duties. At the end of the 18th century, a large number of those tried by the Revolution’s courts were imprisoned at the Conciergerie, including Marie-Antoinette.
A UNESCO World Heritage site.
