Location History
Former parliament whose structure dates back to the Middle Ages. Between 1469 and 1492, the parliamentarians build the Grand Chamber (now First Chamber of the Court of Appeal). From the 15th to the 17th century, new courtrooms are built or upgraded (Golden Chamber of 1470-1505, House of Hercules in 1691). From 1824 to 1833, architect Jean-Pierre Laffon restructures the old palace and built the facades of the courtyard and the east-west wing backyards. He set up the Court of Assizes in the east, from an old courtroom. In 1845, construction continues with the construction of the Court of First Instance. In 1859-1860, Esquié rebuilt the Court of Assizes. Clarification: Court of Appeal (Building A): roofs and facades overlooking the courtyard (including grills and yard space), façade garden (excluding elevation) of the wing of the First Presidency, front courtyard and roof of the First Chamber, Lobby
