  • In the 1st District, has some very striking doors and is on the île de la cité. It is a place that deserves attention at least.

  • With the large pillars, towers and the huge area of this building, combined with the heavy stones used, this Palace of Justice looks very stately and Grand. The building dominates the neighborhood by its imposing structure and size. Very impressive! Because I myself am employed in a judicial context speak these buildings I travel always on. The version in Paris has already far from disappointed me!

  • The former Palace of San Luis, where you will find the Santa Capilla, is today seat of the Supreme Court of France, half of the 19th century building, is a beauty, only to see the access gate, you can tour a few rooms, which are incredible decorations, well worth a visit.
