Palace of Justice (Courts)
It is the seat of the Judicial Power and of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation. It is located in front of the Plaza Lavalle. Previously in that place was the artillery park that was demolished to build the courthouse.
The building has seven floors of neoclassical style with Greek and Roman influences, we can also see that the architecture is of a Beaux Arts style, that is to say, that the forms and the spaces are not only organized in an aesthetic way but also according to the hierarchies and functioning.
The original project was designed by architect Norbert Maillard in 1889, but the construction took about 20 approximately 20 years. In 1905 construction began with some reforms of the original project. The building was inspired by the Palace of Justice of Paris.
It is a building worth knowing, for the statues inside that represent justice, for its spectacular courtyard of honor and for the life that the palace has from Monday to Friday during court hours.
The sculpture "Justice" of Rogelio Yrurtia that occupies the Central Hall, is a replica, since the original, not having been paid, was given by the artist to a friendly family, who placed it in the Cemetery of Vicente López.
