It is a National Heritage Site since 1975 and an example of the Eclecticism style of architecture.
Its construction started in 1916, by the architect Camille Gardelle. Initially, it was the private residence of businessman and politician Francisco Piria. After his death it was acquired by industrialist José Martínez Reina and served as the residence of President Juan José Amézaga between 1943 and 1946. It was acquired by the Uruguayan State on 5 January 1954 by the Act of N° 12.090 as seat of the Supreme Court.
It is located in the barrio Centro (Downtown) of Montevideo, on the "Human Rights Passage", between Plaza de Cagancha and San José Street. In front of its main entrance is the Monument to Justice, a work by Rafael Lorente Mourelle.
