The Château de Versailles

This castle is located in the town of Versailles, capital of the department of Yvelines, south-west of Paris. In 1661, Louis XIV ordered the completion of the castle from a hunting lodge built for Louis XIII. Architect Jule-Mansart Hardoin binds the two shows by the most visited of the castle: the Hall of Mirrors, 75 meters long. King sun settles permanently in 1682 and thus becomes the capital of France. 7 years after the death of King Louis XV decided to turn this castle into his residence. He asked Jacques-Ange Gabriel to transform the royal apartments.
The Royal Opera House, built entirely of carved and painted imitated marble was finished in 1770. The palace was abandoned in 1789 and turned into a museum.
The Palace of Versailles is famous for its huge park, designed by Le Notre in the reign of Louis XIV. He installed the grandiose perspectives highlighting fountains and statues that are repeated walkways groves. This park contains admirable French gardens, decorated with sculptures inspired by great mythological themes, water features and ponds over a hundred hectares. This is the Grand Canal, a mile long which concluded the whole. From 1687, Mansard built the Grand Trianonfor the rest of the King and Madame de Maintenon. The architect also built the chapel and the Orangerie. The Petit Trianon was built by Gabriel in 1762 for Madame de Pompadour, a mistress of King Louis XV. But the woman died before the inauguration of the monument. Marie Antoinette helped by Richard Mique has transformed the park Trianon hamlet consisting of houses rustic thatched or tiled.
