A Place of Memory.

In the tranquil setting of Square Louis XVI, in Paris, lies a marvel of late neo-classical architecture: the Chapelle Expiatoire.

The expiatory chapel was built in 1815 on the orders of the late king’s brother, Louis XVIII. On the exact spot beheaded sovereigns were buried in 1793 along with many other illustrious victims of the Revolution, including Marie-Antoinette. The chapel is dedicated to the memory of the royal family.
