Lyon's historical Palais de Justice reveals its secrets...

Following four years of renovation, discover this architectural jewel by Louis-Pierre Baltard, Lyon's historical Palais de Justice.

Entering via its imposing façade with its 24 columns, you will discover and understand this focal point housing the court of appeal and the assizes on the same site where justice has been dispensed since the tenth century.

An exceptional opportunity to wander through the building's main concourse, the court rooms used every day by magistrates and lawyers.
The very place where several of the most importtant trials in French history have been conducted.

Visit exclusively proposed by ONLYLYON Tourism and Conventions.
