    We meet the Palais de Justice de Poitiers through a tour of the Office de Tourisme. It's worth a lot to make this visit. The price is very reasonable and the history lesson is priceless. At the entrance there is a huge and magnificent room called la salle des Pas Perdus ", the" Hall of lost steps ". The design of the immense fireplace with chimney triple is impressive. The good to go tour is that we have access to the Tour Maubergeon, that has a room called Salle Jeanne D'arc. The history of this tower is a chapter. Leaving the Palais, be sure to visit the small garden behind the Tour Maubergeon, with a statue of Joan of Arc.

    Before becoming the courthouse, the medieval palace was the Palace of the Dukes of Aquitaine. He spent a few years in the royal domain by the marriage of Eleanor of Aquitaine with the King of France Louis 7 in 1136. But their divorce and remarriage of Eleanor with Henri de Plantagenet (future Henri 2 of England) did spend in the English camp. When Eleanor allied with his sons against their father Henri 2 in 1173, the population supports the King of France Philippe Auguste. The region enters the royal Capetian définivement ainssi as the Castle domain.

    Make a visit to the monumental room concourse. The size of the hearths of fireplaces and vaulted height are prodigious. Emerge. Then bypass the 'block' of houses and shops around the Palace by the left (rue Gambetta, pedestrian). 1st Street which will be on your left (rue des Cordeliers) will make you spend on medieval arrears of the Palace, an ancient fortress converted a lot of times... You will then arrive naturally Place Charles De Gaulle to visit our great lady.
