Île de la Cité is one of the 2 islands of Paris and the centre of the medieval city of Paris. It was originally settled by a Gallic tribe, the Parisii. The Romans set up their city of Lutetia close by, and in the middle ages the Merovingian king Clovis established his palace on the island. Still remaining on Île de la Cité are three of Paris' most famous ancient buildings: Notre-Dame de Paris, King (Saint) Louis IX's masterpiece Sainte-Chapelle, and the Conciergerie prison.
