Located in the Île de la Cité in central Paris, Palais de Justice de Paris is built on the site of the former royal palace of Saint Louis, of which the Sainte Chapelle remains, and the justice of the state has been dispensed at this site since medieval times. From the 16th century to the French Revolution, this was the seat of the Parlement de Paris. At Palais de Justice de Paris, you can also see the ancient structure of the Conciergerie, a former prison, now a museum, where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned before being executed on the guillotine.

The Palais de Justice is located in the heart of Paris. The pomp and grandeur of the palace is befitting of kings with its gold and black railing. During the French Revolution, Marie Antoinette was imprisoned there and eventually guillotined. You can get there by getting off at the Cite metro. Entry was free when I went but the queues were horrendous.
This cathedral is absolutely beautiful and a must see.
