This former palace now houses the judicial courts of the city of Paris. The building is grand, classical, beautiful and well maintained. During our visit, there were no tours inside, which was a shame.

Just down the river from our hotel we came across. Big police presence which is reassuring. If you have time, take a look

Originally the Palais de la Cité, this historic complex houses the beautiful Sainte Chapelle and the infamous Conciergerie, where may people were imprisoned before their execution during the French Revolution. (See separate listings for more information) The main building was rebuilt in the 19th century.

The palace of justice is located on the Ile de la Cite next to Sainte Chapelle. The palace was once home to the French kings until 1358. The building now contains the city's law courts and many were sent for execution here during the revolution.

The Palais de justice is situated in the same precinct as Sainte Chappelle and it's best to combine the visit unless you are are a lawyer or follower of law - then the visit is ok to do separately.

Among the oldest surviving buildings of the former Royal Palace are the Sainte Chapelle during the reign of Louis IX also including the Conciergerie. In this note, the Palais de Justice shares the same compound with these important buildings, the Sainte-Chapelle and the Conciergerie. When...More

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
