  • Part of the beautiful architectural ensemble surrounding the Republic square, located in the District of Santo Antônio. It was built during the Dutch domination, currently the seat of the Court of Justice (second judicial instance of Pernambuco). In the Christmas period looks great with the special lighting that receives, in addition to the performances of choirs in the stairwell of the building.

  • Records the history that the Court of Justice of Pernambuco came into existence upon the Charter of d. João VI, of 6 February 1821. At the time, was called the Court of appeal of Pernambuco and settled in an area within the former Jesuit College of Recife, on 13 August 1822. The seat of the Court was transferred a few times: the Jesuit College went to the property of the old Exchequer (demolished in 1840), then to the Government Palace, on 12 July 1838. Returned to the Jesuit College, worked at the Old Jail, the street of the Emperor, until your extinction on 8 January 1892, when outside created the Superior Court of Justice. From then on, worked in a building that was between the current Public File and the Secretariat of finance to occupy the imposing Palace of Justice, located at the corner of the street of the Emperor Pedro II, facing the garden of the square of the Republic. Was the Government of Sergio Loreto that the construction of the Palace of Justice received special attention, whose foundation stone was launched on 2 July 1924, in commemoration of the first Centenary of the Confederation of Ecuador. At the beginning of this century, the reef has already passed through urban changes of European influences, especially from Paris, which guided the improvements and embellishments of the city. Were works of the Loreto Government: "the completion of the barracks and the Derby; the construction of the Beira-Mar Avenue (now Avenida Boa Viagem); the dredging of the port of Recife and expansion of some quays and warehouses to allow entry and side of great vessels; the construction of a second pipeline of the Gurjaú, and the roads between Forest-Cabrobó-Boa Vista and between Forest-Willow-Leopoldina-Ouricuri; restored schoolhouses and gave special attention to the training of teachers. " The site chosen to build the Palace of Justice (island of Antonio Vaz, bairro de Santo Antonio) outside occupied by five buildings, on Rua João do Rego, and Barracks buildings of the public force and the convent of the friars of San Francisco (the former ward of wards) : the first, back to the square of the Republic; the second, projecting toward the same square. The project for the construction of the Palace of Justice, in eclectic style, adopted in 1924 by the Chief Engineer of the additional works from the port, is the Italian architect, graduated from the School of fine arts of Paris, Sam Palumbo (1891-1966), with the collaboration of Evaristo de Sá. It was the fourth project presented. The first, in the year 1917, the architect Hector Mello, a professor at the school of fine arts of Rio de Janeiro. The second, Sam Palumbo, Luiz style XVI, in dimensions smaller than the approved project; and the third, the architect and painter Henri Moser.  The construction of the building of the Palace of Justice took about six years to complete (opened on 7 September 1930, in Estácio Coimbra) and had moments of downtime: on 29 December 1926, with works resumed in March 7 1928. Even when the bulging out reworked design by the architect himself Palumbo, at the request of the Board of public works that had been in the works. However, in the Government of Carlos de Lima Chandra the Palace of Justice was fully completed: there was the acquisition of furniture and the final finish in building environments. The Palace covers an area of 2,506 m2 and has five floors. The dome is slightly lowered than it should be in the original project. The stained glass Windows are from the German Heinrich Moser and represent the first Legislative Assembly of the State. It is also your authorship a painting that represents justice and which can be seen in the current sessions of the court room. On the facade, in front of the dome, are two allegorical sculpture groups the justice and the law, entitled "justice and the family" and "justice and the Man", the artist Pernambuco Bibiano Silva. Are also of your authorship busts of Jurists Pernambuco [Francis] Paula Batista and Gervásio Pires, located in the room.
