"At Least See the Outside" Palais de Justice Tip by hquittner
Palais de Justice, Paris: 24 reviews and 64 photos
Although some of the Palais de Justice uses structures in the Conciergerie, most of it dates from rebuilding finished in 1786 of the Cour de Mai with its beautiful gilded Louis XVI -style wrought-iron gate and the stairway. Filling out the North side incorporating the old elements and surrounding Ste. Chapelle occurred in the 19C along with the Vestibule on the West side which is the real ?front door?. The South wing was only complete in 1913. In earlier times the King?s Justice was administered from the Cour de Mai.I do not know how difficult it is to get in any more. Decades ago I had no trouble. There is as you can see a check-point.This immense complex pleases most attorneys.
