Conciergerie (anglais)

 

 

 

salle-gens-armes

Hall of the Men-at-Arms

Built in the XVIIth century under the reign of Philip IV the Fair, the Hall of the Men-at-Arms at the Conciergerie was used as a refectory for the royal guard.
With a surface of 1,760 sq. m and located below the level of the Quai de l'Horloge, it has remained at the same level as the Île de la Cité at the time it was built.
The first bay, which is higher than the others, was nicknamed "Rue de Paris", as it was crossed by all those condemned to death on their way to their executions.

salle-gens-armes

Hall of the Men-at-Arms

Part of the Hall of the Men-at-Arms at the Conciergerie which allows access to the kitchens known as the Saint-Louis kitchens, even though they were built long after his death. This access is partly hidden by seven columns installed in the XIXth century to support the hump-backed staircase of the lobby.
