Palais des Rois d'Aragon
In 1204 Montpellier passed into the hands of the Kings of Aragon. Jacques d'Aragon built the fortified city walls around the city that was shaped like a crest (or ecusson). Today the city center is still called the Écusson. In reality the kings of Aragon lived on the site where the Palais de Justice currently stands.
