Description

This in-app audio tour with a txt will help you explore the historic Conciergerie! This medieval palace, standing at the heart of Paris for over 1000 years, was initially a residence for the Kings of the Capetian dynasty. Evolving over time, it became Europe's largest civic hall with added kitchens, gardens, and chapels. After the royal court moved to the Louvre in 1360, the palace transformed into a prison under the oversight of the Concierge, giving the building its name. During the French Revolution in 1789, the Conciergerie gained infamy as 4200 prisoners faced trial for counter-revolutionary activities, with about 65% meeting the guillotine. This in-app audio tour, coupled with a txt, provides an opportunity to explore the millennium-old palace at your own pace. Navigate exhibits, listen to audio commentary, and encounter notable prisoners like Marie Antoinette and Madame Roland, gaining insights into their compelling stories. Note! This tour is not affiliated with the Conciergerie but is provided by an independent creator.
