The courthouse was built in 1835 on the site of the former Hotel-Dieu, an institution for the sick and needy. The building has all the typical decorations of the time: columns, pediments ... all in the spirit of Nineteenth-Century judicial construction. Until 1906, the prison and the police occupied the rear of the building. The courthouse was largely destroyed during World War I. Today it houses the High Court, the Magistrates Court and the Commercial Court.
