  • Visit to match up with that of the Holy Chapel, which is located in its precincts and that the Concierge by a separate in the same building entrance. He must be getting lost in the multiple Hall of Palace to feel his soul and his emotional charge. Hearings are public, so we can enter the hearing rooms to enjoy their sets for some and the trial. The most interesting are those of the 1st ch of the Court of appeal, the great Hall of the Court of sitting and the room of the Court of cassation (they are closed out of the donations hearings focus on Monday to Friday from 14 h to 17 h). The Palace is closed on Sunday. What are the final months of the courthouse in its current configuration before moving one part of courts to batignolles.
