Discover the emblematic Palace of Versailles
Versailles is one of the largest and most elaborate royal palaces ever built. This immense and magnificent palace began as a hunting lodge which was built for King Louis XIII in 1624. The small pavilion was the start of an extremely huge palace which would cost the French government more than it could imagine . Louis XIV (the Sun King) built Versailles to be his home. For Louis, a magnificent palace would be a must in royal life. All kings and nobles were to have their palaces wonderfully decorated, with beautiful paintings, ballrooms and expensive furniture.
Small guest house in the gardens
To make Louis such a wonderful place, he hired an architect named Louis Le Vau and a painter / decorator named Charles Le Brun. These two men made plans to build a palace that would cover, including gardens, a total of 37,000 acres. During the palace construction period, 400 new sculptures were added as well as 1,400 fountains. When it was finished, the king decided that it was not enough. Some parts of the palace were therefore refurbished in 1676.
Statues in the Hall of Mirrors
Jules Hardouin-Mansart was hired to overhaul parts of the palace. He continued to build more on Versailles and almost finished it, with the exception of the Chapel, which was built before the death of Louis XIV. Louis XV took over Versailles in 1722. A total of 36,000 workers worked there until it was completed.
Statue in the garden
In 1962, all of the palace assets that could be located were brought back and the palace was almost completely restored to its original condition. The gardens and statues have also been restored, and more than 80 of the rooms have been renovated and decorated. They are now open to the public. Finally, after construction was completed, more than 10,000 people lived in the palace, which included nobles and servants.
All about the garden of Versailles
Located to the west of the Palace of Versailles, the Garden of Versailles has acquired several appellations. In any case, there is a charge for access to the garden during the events entitled "Les jours de Grandes Eaux" and "Les Jardins Musicaux", except for children [0-5 years]. For the other days, it's free for everyone. To access the garden of Versailles, you can walk there or you can take the little electric train, passing through the court of the princes. Before entering, it is necessary to familiarize yourself with some figures relating to the garden of Versailles and also to the Palace of Versailles. Before the Revolution, the royal estate of Versailles covered 8,000 hectares, but for reasons of spatial planning, the area was reduced. So the area occupied by the garden is currently 77 Ha, for the small park and 431 Ha for the large park. Despite the shrinkage, the Garden of Versailles remains a veritable open-air museum with its 55 fountains, the 620 water jets which are maintained from a 35 km underground gallery. It is important to remember that the garden has suffered several times the ravages of devastating storms, the most violent of which were in 1990 and 1999, since its creation in 1661. Despite this, the French garden of Louis XIV continued to suffer from many evolutions, many replantings.
