"Chapelle Expiatoire is the former site of the Madeleine cemetery where King Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette were both decapitated, and buried in 1793. Their bones were exhumed in 1815 and moved to the royal necropolis of St. Denis."

En fait the unfortunate king and queen were not guillotined at the Chapelle Expiatoire but at the place de la Révolution, the present-day place de la Concorde.


It was a little difficult to find
the location as it is hidden among law buildings, but we found the tour very interesting.

We were in Paris on April 9, 2007 and noticed they were making a WWII movie. Do you have any information about this movie? Thank you.
