The Palais de Justice , formerly the Palais de la Cité , is located on the Boulevard du Palais in the Île de la Cité in central Paris, France.
Among the oldest surviving buildings of the former royal palace are the Sainte Chapelle and the Conciergerie, a former prison, now a museum, where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned before being executed on the guillotine. The justice of the state has been dispensed at this site since medieval times. From the sixteenth century to the French Revolution this was the seat of the Parlement de Paris.
