  • Impressive architecture at the heart of the oldest part of Paris. Notre Dame is the obvious draw to Île de la Cité, but this is one of many more things to see here.
  • Just walk by. The main gate is beautiful. It's just a fuew minutes from Notre-Dame.
  • Great views of the street, good service. Drinks were good too.
  • The justice is serious! About crimes! Good!
  • The Palais de justice de Paris is a lovely structure on the Ile de la Cite in the 1e arrndisement in Paris. It is a working courthouse and is located in a really beautiful part of the city. recommended!
