    Expiation

    Close to the classic malls, a small fenced garden invited me in.

    It is the burial place of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, with a neoclassical chapel built by king Louis XVIII.

    It's strange the precaution to "hide" the chapel, in a dense and fenced garden. Is it only to justify the expensive ticket?
