This is one of the most beautiful and impressive historic buildings in town and definitely should be included in your walking tour. Accessible from the train station where we arrived.

delightful

Very elegant building, although you are kept at a distance by railings. Still, this does mean that you get a good view. Small detour from the centre of the Old Town

The “Palace of Justice” in the city of Rouen, is a “Courthouse” built in between the years 1495 and 1525 and this in the Louis XII style.
But formerly the “Chessboard” of Normandy, is one of the most emblematic monuments of the Norman capital 1. It has housed the house the Parloir aux Bourgeois and the former Chessboard of Normandy, afterwoods it became to be the Parliament of Normandy under the reign of Francis I, in the year 1515, before acting as courthouse from the French Revolution.

Not expected
Oct 2019
Now! this is a building to be seen. You would have thought it was a palace fit for a King etc. But it is one of the most magnificent building in Rouen and when you think about it, it probably was THE most important place in its time, except for the Churches of course. I didn't expect this to be so ornate and huge ,. A wonderfull place

Grand building, closed to the public
Jul 2019
This is a great building very close to the cathedral, worth passing on both side, but the side to see is the one with the courtyard, and in rue aux juifs, i.e. where the Jews lived before being expelled. Underneath the courtyard rests of a Jews building, possibly a torah school, have been found, but nothing can be see of that. The building is still in used, and thus only the outside can be appreciated.

We sat in the cafe and people watched

We sat in the cafe opposite and people watched. The building is fantastic and a tour, should I have known, would probably have been worth it.... however, the coffee is great and we did witness military ins and outs....

Great building

The exterior of this building is amazing and a testament to the power within its walls. The restoration carried out after the damage it sustained in WW2 is excellent.

The building was partly destroyed in the second world war but has been rebuilt. It is ornate and quite eye catching.

Beautiful building
Dec 2018 • Family
Palais de Justice is a government building located in the center of Rouen, an important city in Normandie, in the North part of France. It is a gothic building, which was the Parliament of Normandie in the past. Now it is a beautiful building, which I am sure you see, if you walk in the city. Ok.

the place is undergoing a major renovation but just by walking along the outside you can see all the incredible spires, statuary, fine detail.....did not go inside but the outside is worth the walk to get to - ornate as a cathedral
