Justice Palace

The Justice Palace is a building characteristic for Lima’s modernization and remodeling process at the beginning of the 20th century. Inspired by the Justice Palace in Brussels, though much smaller and lacking the dome, works for the neo classical structure started in 1929 and were finished in 1938. Strategically located at the "entrance" to Lima's city center the Palacio de Justicia is an imposing symbol of the judicial power in Peru.

The Justice Palace houses the Supreme Court of Peru, the chambers of the High Court and other tribunals. In the basement you find some prison cells. The Palacio de Justicia isn't open to the general public (only if you are participating in ongoing judicial process), but is worth to have a glimpse at it.
