Wednesday Postcard: La Conciergerie in Paris

Bonjour! This week’s carte postale features La Conciergerie and the bridge, Pont au Change, over the Seine River in Paris.

The Conciergerie has served many purposes. It’s been a Royal residence, a Palace of Justice, as well as a prison during the French Revolution. Marie-Antoinette was its most famous prisoner.

For more information:

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, à bientôt!


      1. We visited France the last two weeks in July, my first time after many years. We first spent 3 days in Paris—not nearly enough time of course—then went to the south of France. We were on a hunt for the perfect cover for my Conversational French for Travelers Phrase book so went city hopping but plan to return in the spring and stay a bit longer in Paris.

        1. Last year’s visit was my second time in Paris. I, too, spent about 3 days there (I agree, not enough time to experience everything!) before heading to Toulouse to visit my friends for a couple of days. I hope you found your perfect book cover while in the south of France!
