Palais de Justice

Today we see the current main entrance to the Palace of Justice, where the highest French legislative courts are located. In the Middle Ages, one must imagine that this entire complex was the Palais de la Cité, the most important palace of kings in Paris. Kings like San Louis lived here. It was the administrative center of Paris at the time.

It was the residence of the kings of France between the sixth and fourteenth centuries. In the nineteenth century, major remodeling works were begun to house the entire judicial volume. These works were interrupted during the events of 1870-1871. The Paris Commune burned much of the building and then restored it to its current form.
