Visit Paris' seat of justice, La Conciergerie, and admire the powerhouse of the city which dates back to the Roman times over 1000 years ago

La Conciergerie has been the central seat of authority and justice in Paris for almost 1000 years. It has a rich history and its ancient halls have seen countless games of power played out within them over the centuries.

The original La Conciergerie was a Roman fortress that, due to its enduring political significance, has been repeatedly enlarged throughout the years. It evolved into the oldest royal palace in Paris – the Palais de la Cité.

La Conciergerie highlights

  • It was said at the time to be the most impressive palace of the Middle Ages and continues to amaze any Paris visitor who walks within its walls. In the late 14th Century the kings relocated and La Conciergerie became the central administration offices of the Parliament of Paris.
  • The atmospheric corridors and grand halls of this ancient civic building are a grand monument to the beauracratic powers that once stretched across half the world.

I wasn't sure when we purchased the Paris Pass that we would get our money's worth out of it. Boy, was i wrong! We saw more of Paris because we had the Paris Pass than we would have otherwise. Just being able to hop on and hop off the bus whenever we wanted, not to mention the boat trip, and the many attractions that were free because we had the pass. It made our trip to Paris more enjoyable and memorable.

It was a great decision to buy the Paris Pass and I recommend it to others. The Paris Pass was very useful to our enjoyment of Paris. We used it daily and went to some places that we probably wouldn't have chosen or known about if we had not had it. Paying for all of this in advance freed us from having to constantly purchase tickets, exchange money and carry a lot of cash. We felt it was a good value and so easy to use. My advice, purchase a Paris Pass to enhance your visit.
