Marvel at the magnitude of Justice Palace (Palais de Justice), whose construction required the relocation of an entire community. The neoclassical giant remains an important center of justice and is often bustling with law professionals. The sheer size of the building commands your attention--it takes up an entire city block and is larger than St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Like St. Peter's, a gold dome makes the palace easy to spot from different points around the city, so you could use it as a marker to orient yourself to other attractions. There is no cost to enter the building, and you are free to roam the halls, as well as view the main courtroom. Watch for the imposing statuary by Pierre Armand Cattier in the entrance hall.

  • Building big, visible from a distance, which can be confused by the nature of its cupola, with a place of worship. Anyway, if this is divine justice expressed there, it is men who are prime. He must visit with attention to appreciate the imagination and the skill of its builders.

  • It is a magnificent building where is given to justice in Belgium. It is located in the high part of Brussels, and next to it, there is a viewpoint, from where you can see all the lower part of the city. Communicates it with a (free) elevator that brings you closer to the Marolle district.
