The old traditional court building on the Ile de la Cite and across from Place Dauphine. It's very impressive but a bit cold.

A very monumental building from all sides, both the one facing Sainte-Chapelle but also the one facing Place Dauphine. Take a look at its nice architecture.

Just knowing this was the site for many to be held captive while awaiting execution was awkward. Then as you head down the corridors, there were shadows that seemed to creep around. It was getting close to closing so it might have been just reflections...More

This former palace now houses the judicial courts of the city of Paris. The building is grand, classical, beautiful and well maintained. During our visit, there were no tours inside, which was a shame.

Originally the Palais de la Cité, this historic complex houses the beautiful Sainte Chapelle and the infamous Conciergerie, where may people were imprisoned before their execution during the French Revolution. (See separate listings for more information) The main building was rebuilt in the 19th century.

The palace of justice is located on the Ile de la Cite next to Sainte Chapelle. The palace was once home to the French kings until 1358. The building now contains the city's law courts and many were sent for execution here during the revolution.

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,

Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
