Le Palais de Justice fut érigé en 1835 à l'emplacement de l'ancien Hôtel-Dieu, établissement d'accueil pour les malades et les indigents. L'édifice reprend le vocabulaire décoratif de l'Antiquité: colonnes, fronton... dans l'esprit de constructions judiciaires du XIXe siècle. Sur l'arrière, se situaient la prison et la gendarmerie, démolies in 1906. Le Palais de Justice fut en grande partie détruit pendant la Première Guerre mondiale. Aujourd'hui, il abrite le tribunal de Grande Instance, le tribunal d'Instance et le tribunal de Commerce.

With its classical inspired architecture, the Courthouse was built in 1835 on the site of the former Hôtel-Dieu, an instition which once cared for the town's sick and destitute.

English translation:
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.
