Fodor's Review

This 19th-century neoclassical courthouse complex occupies the site of the former royal palace of St-Louis that later housed Parliament until the French Revolution. It is recognizable from afar with the tower of Sainte-Chapelle, tucked inside the courtyard, peeking out. Some 4,000 magistrates, lawyers, state fonctionnaires, and police officials work on the property. Black-frocked judges can often be spotted taking a cigarette break on the majestic rear staircase facing Rue du Harlay.
