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.

It's a good idea to visit Palais de Justice when you visit Sainte Chappelle and it's free! It's required to go through the security check point, the same entrance as going to Sainte Chappelle. more »
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.
