Chateau de Versailles

Chateau de Versailles


It is one of the most beautiful achievements of 18th-century French art. The site began as Louis XIII’s hunting lodge before his son Louis XIV transformed and expanded it, moving the court and government of France to Versailles in 1682.  Each of the three French kings who lived there until the French Revolution added improvements to make it more beautiful.
