The Palace of Justice, located on the "Île de la Cité" in central Paris, France, is built on the site of the former royal palace of Saint Louis, of which the "Sainte-Chapelle" remains. Thus the justice of the state has been dispensed at this site since medieval times.

From the sixteenth century to the French Revolution this was the seat of the "Parlement de Paris".

The Palais also contains the ancient structure of the Conciergerie, a former prison, now a museum, where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned before being executed on the guillotine.


The Palace of Justice, Paris is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
