Parliament of Normandy - Rouen Courthouse
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.
