… Continuation de la visite de la Conciergerie a Paris…
We toured the Salles des Gardes & the Salles des Gens d’Armes – where the king’s personnel took their meals, then to the kitchen with four gigantesque fireplaces– each one specializing in some kind of food. The “Rue de Paris” which received the men who couldn’t afford to pay. They slept on straw and had to protect their faces and ears at night from rats. In the Galerie des Prisonniers, we saw the cell where prisoners spent their last night before execution, if they were sentenced after seven. If they were sentenced during the day, they were executed immediately.
