“Beautiful architecture.”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

it. is a very nice building and the city must be proud about it. Location is wonderful and the location is exciting mostly for tourists in Old Montreal.
White collars working in the surroundings have plenty of restaurants at different level prices.

“Concrete Tower”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

A black concrete and granite structure without any design in the Old Town surrounded by Heritage buildings is truly an eyesore. And they call it a Palace? What a joke!

“A courthouse in Montreal (Palace of Justice)”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

This is a strange place to review but here goes, it's Montreals main courthouse nobody ever comes out of here happy the building is ugly and foreboding, there are no tours so don't bother. If you spend your whole life never having to go there you are lucky.

“Neat!”
Reviewed 29 November 2012

This place is neat, but I wouldn't say it's a must-see. It's a fairly standard legal, provincial building with lots of doors and blue signs.

If you're into law and like seeing different courthouses, you might have fun, otherwise it's not all that interesting!

“Which one is this?”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

The picture looks like the second Palais de Justice; we have a third one which is mostly used in Montreal. The one pictured is beautiful, located next to City Hall in Old Montreal. I'm not sure if it's the first or second one. I haven't been for a visit in a long time but it was a beautifully kept old building. The current Palais de Justice is also in Old Montreal, is very nice but not as historic as this one. I do hope I have the right building! Regardless, these old buildings in Old Montreal are truly worth a visit.
