This is part of the wonderful 'Itineraries'-series: very small booklets with the essential information and a selection of illustrations. The Conciergerie in Paris was the medieval palais of the French kings up until the mid 14th Century, and it played a very special role in the French Revolution as the jail where some famous people spent there last days and hours before their execution.

Book description
The twin towers of the Conciergerie, overlooking the Seine, are amongst the scenes which convey the image of Paris around the world. But not everyone knows that the Palais de la Cité was the first residence of the kings of France in Paris. Before becoming a prison, described as death's waiting room during the Revolution, the Conciergerie was indeed part of the sumptuous palace built by Philip the Fair.
