Chateau de Versailles

Chateau de Versailles - Presentation:

The Chateau de Versailles is one of the finest French monuments and the jewel of the French monarchy. Louis XIV, the “Roi Soleil”, installed his court and his government in 1682. The kings then succeeded until the French Revolution by bringing each time a personal touch: Hall of Mirrors, the Queen's Hamlet...
A true masterpiece of French art, the Palace of Versailles opened to witness the splendor of the Bourbon’s monarchy: its French gardens, park, fountains, the great canal that could accommodate military vessels.
Finally, the Palace of Versailles sometimes offers famous international artists to exhibit in the palace, causing an explosive mixture of contemporary and classical architecture.
