Step Back in Time at the Expiatory Chapel

Immerse yourself in French history with a visit to the Expiatory Chapel, a neoclassical architectural marvel in the heart of Paris. To enhance your experience, the Expiatory Chapel offers a free downloadable booklet in French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, and Russian. The creation of Pierre Fontaine, who also designed the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, this serene site echoes tales from the turbulent era of the French Revolution. You'll be transported back to the days when King Louis XVI and Queen Marie-Antoinette met their tragic fate. Marvel at the two striking marble sculptures, one of an angel showing the sky to the king and the other, of Marie-Antoinette in prayer, each capturing the poignant moments of the ill-fated monarchs.

Discover the Royal Legacy and Artistic Masterpieces

Dig deeper into the story as you descend into the crypt, where a black marble altar marks the site of the royal couple's initial resting place. The chapel’s design is a blend of neoclassical, High-Renaissance, and Greco-Roman motifs, wrapping you in a tangible sense of history. Ordered by Louis XVIII, it stands as a testament to his brother and sister-in-law's reign and the events that reshaped France. As you leave, you will hold a newfound appreciation for France's rich history encapsulated within the Expiatory Chapel's walls.
