Palace of VersaillesA World of Opulence
  • Ile de France

Versailles was at start only a village and
royal hunting place. The king Louis XIV then
decided that the royal court should leave the
Louvre in Paris and ordered a palace to be built
there. At its peak, the city had a population
of more than 50000 and was the capital of the
kingdom of France, which it stayed until the
French revolution. The palace evolved under
Napoleon, but was then nearly abandoned before
being made a national monument in the 19th
century. Its extensive gardens designed by the
omnipresent Le Notre and its numerous buildings
scattered in a very large estate make it one of
the major attractions of Ile de France.
