Description

This splendid Renaissance building was successively the Exchequer of Normandy (Court of Justice), Parliament of Normandy and is today Rouen's law courts. The lavish 16C façade was decorated with a concern for gradation, typical of Renaissance designs behind which lies a forest of sculpted stonework, starting with a large stone staircase on the left wing leading to the old prosecutors' chamber. Digs in the main courtyard in 1976 revealed the oldest Jewish monument of France.
