a wonderful architectural solution that fits in this part of town. I didn't see what it looked like inside but it is very nice on the outside

Construction of this building started in 1914, the year WOI broke out and ended the optimistic Belle Epoque era in Europe. In this period European powers, particularly France dominated the world stage. Spain was lagging behind. The dominant aristocratic Cuenca families were well aware of this development and initiated the French cité ideal in Cuenca. The renovation of the parque Calderon is another example of this initiative and to some extent the new cathedral, but the best model is this prestigious neoclassical building opposite the old cathedral that since 1959 houses the Provincial court.

Some reviewers mix up the history of the court (almost two hundred years old) and the history of the building.

This crusty old building is worth a quick inspection, but I didn’t think it was anything special. There appears to be a security screening, but we walked right through it since no one was there. There are more worthwhile attractions in Cuenca.

An imposing government building - who would ave thought the first floor would offer a stunning collection of local art. Minimal information but an impressive experience.

As some reviewers have stated, even if you just get a glimpse from the outside, make an effort to do so. After researching our trip to Cuenca, this building seemed to pop-up on all site referring to Cuenca. I was actually excited when we stumbled upon it by accident. Good picture site!

Extraordinary stone work, well worth a look! Adjacent to the downtown core so not out of your way. Good luck!

After I entered the building I was very glad I did. The architecture is beautiful! There are some very interesting painting telling the history about justice in the country.

If you like marble, come here. A great old building which you can enter and have a look around. A small art gallery is there as well as the well preserved and renovated building. The legal beagles certaily have a nice place to ply their trade!

This is perhaps the most eye-catching building in Cuenca. In a city filled with old colonial buildings, el Corte Provincial is a new mid-20th century edifice. Beautiful nonetheless, made of stone with unusual design of multiple double-layered columns quasi-French. It’s a functional building housing the Azuay provincial court. The inner courtyard is open to the public. It’s a great place to cool down from city walks, and enjoy the lovely interior design: mixture of neoclassical arches, a stone fountain, and a high skylight. It’s beautifully lit at night.

This is a good example of French architecture of the times of construction, which is ome of many good examples throughout Cuenca. As a retired architect, I would know.
