Heloïse and Abélard

We visited the Conciergerie lately. It was on our list of “things worth seeing” and it was well worth the visit.

It’s the former palace of the Kings, then turned into a Tribunal, then a jail (during the French revolution) and lastly a tribunal again. 

Now it’s a museum. This medieval part is rather bare bt refurbished. The rest is a museum dedicated to prisoners during the revolution and especially Marie-Antoinette.

My preferred picture in that lot, that which is supposed to be about Heloïse and Abélard, the two famous 12th-century lovers.
