Poitiers Courts of Law

The law courts date back to the Restoration, but the façade does not prepare you for the Grande salle, a rare example of urban architecture in the Middle Ages. And it is truly remarkable - three monumental fireplaces and beautiful statues representing Jean de Berry, Charles VI, Isabeau de Bavière and Jeanne de Boulogne. The keep, known as the Tour Maubergeon, dates back to the early 12C.
