From the 16th century to the French Revolution, this was the seat of the Parlement de Paris.

  • Tall and imponent. I'm not sure if you can enter the building, i haven't tried. But being able to see and photograph it from the outside is great. 
  • The courthouse is an imposing building and it is worthwhile to spend a few minutes to admire its architecture (details in the dome, the clock, the columns and statues on the façade). There is the Santa Capilla that dazzles with its stained glass windows.

  • A building that contains one of the few medieval circuit of the city: la Sainte Chappelle. Definitely worth a stop.
