Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A classic French style Parliament edifice dominates the same name square in the very center of Brittany capital. The edifice much reminds on the Paris' Senate headquarters in Luxembourg Palace which is understandable as it was designed by the same architect.
We couldn't enter the bldg, but enjoyed sitting on a square in front with similar architecture all around it.

Large building located in a beautiful square. By the same architect as the Palais du Luxembourg in Paris with which it has some similarities.
We did not visit the interior, but the surroundings of the building with the square are pleasant.

The Parliament of Brittany is at the same time the main building of the heritage of the city, and also one of the strong symbols of the Breton History, and besides the seat of the court of appeal of the area and the site Rennes which attracts a large number of tourists every year. In the year 1532, the duchy of Brittany is attached to the kingdom of France. It also follows the decision, in the year 1554, to create a Parliament of Brittany. The construction of the Palace began in the year 1615 and ended in the year 1655 according to the plans of the architect Salomon de Brosse, to whom we owe the Palais du Luxembourg in Paris.

I would not recommend this to the mainstream American tourist. The building was destroyed by fire during labor unrest 25 years ago, and the reproductions have little true historical interest. You get to see the insides of modern French courtrooms, but for most tourists a walk around the outside of the building and admiring it from the park in front will be sufficient.

Very impressive building and square, well worth a walk around. 2 good Bureau de Change nearby doing a far better rate than a Condor Ferries.

After a fire due (already) ro riots in 1994, this building has been perfectly restored and houses again the Cour d'Appel (a tribunal). So it is better to share a guided visit.

We went into the building on a guided tour, and fortunately on a day when the court was not sitting, so we were able to access all of the principal rooms on the first floor.

The tour was wonderfully interesting, and informative and well worth booking. You'll need to secure your place at the tourist information information office, from where the tour starts.

The tours are only available in French, and obviously being a court building, you'll need a fairly decent level of French to follow the details of the procedures of the court and details of the building.

It is not possible to buy your ticket on the place, you have to go in a tourist office, 800 metres from the parliament.

It's actually a Court House, not a Parlament. Anyway, really good in case you're interested in architecture, law and history.
