Palais de Justice, Paris: 24 reviews and 64 photos
The Palais de Justice stands on the Ile de la Cité, where the ancient Roman city is supposed to have lied. The French kings lived in the castle until 1358, when they moved to the Louvre.
Its façade with Doric columns was built by Pierre Desmaisons and Jacques Antoine in 1786; it bears the revolutionary and, later, republican motto Liberté, égalité, fraternité ("Freedom, equality, brotherhood"). The gate in wrought iron that divides the courtyard from the street dates back to 1787. During the French revolution, the building was transformed into Palais de la Justice.
The French tricolour waves on the top of the palace, that has a beautiful dome, as you see in the photos of this tip.
