Paris - Palais de Justice

The Palais de Justice is located in the Île de la Cité in central Paris, France.

It is built on the site of the former royal palace of Saint Louis, of which the Sainte Chapelle remains.

It houses various courts, including the Paris correctional court. It also houses the Conciergerie, a former prison, now a museum, notable because Marie Antoinette was imprisoned there before being executed on the guillotine.
