Palais de Justice information
The ornately Gothic Law Courts, little more than a shell at the end of WWII, have been restored to their early-16th-century Gothic glory. The courtyard, with its impossibly delicate spires, gargoyles and statuary, is accessible via a metal detector from rue aux Juifs.
Under the staircase at the courtyard's eastern end is the Monument Juif , the oldest Jewish communal structure in France and the only reminder of Rouen's medieval Jewish community, expelled by Philippe le Bel in 1306.
