  The Conciergerie
by IIGUANA
 
 

The Conciergerie, besides being a rather unsual building with medieval towers, has a unenviable reputation: during the French Revolution some 2,800 people, including Danton, Saint-Just and Marie-Antoinette, were dispatched from here to the guillotine...
Formerly a royal palace, the Conciergerie became Paris' first prison.

Address: 2, Bld du Palais (1st)
Directions: Close to Musee D'Orsay, between Hotel De Ville and the Louvre, across the Seine.
