Chapelle Expiatoire

The expiatory chapel was designed by the architect Pierre-François-Léonard Fontaine in 1815, at Louis XVIII's request. It was built on the site of the cemetery where Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette were buried after having been guillotined in the present place de la Concorde in 1793. This unknown masterpiece is the symbol of the Restoration.
