Palais de Justice Historique 3.0 rating

  Landmarks

The French neo-classical court house of Palais de Justice, also known as 'the 24 columns' for its colonnaded facade, was built between 1835 and 1842 by architect Louis-Pierre Baltard. It now houses only the criminal court (Cour d'Assises) and the court of appeal. The other jurisdictions moved to a new building in Part-Dieu in 1995. The most famous trial held there was that of the former head of the Lyon Gestapo, Klaus Barbie, in 1987. The building is currently undergoing major refurbishment works.
