  • Listed as world heritage of humanity for 30 years now, the Palace of Versailles is one of the finest treasures to emerge from the French art of the 17th century.

    A seat of power until 1789, over the centuries the Palace of Versailles has been constantly extended, including the Hall of Mirrors, the State Apartments and the Museum of French History.

    It all began with a modest château built by Louis XIII for hunting. Louis XIV then went on to select this locality to build the palace we know so well today, a symbol of royal absolutism and the very incarnation of French classical art.

    Among other things, during the 1670s Louis XIV created the King’s and the Queen’s State Apartments. The palace’s most emblematic feature remains the Hall of Mirrors designed by Mansart, a place to see and to be seen and the ultimate reception venue. The extension work continued in the following century, including the building of the Chapel and the Opera. The Palace today covers 63,154 m2 and includes no fewer than 2,300 rooms.

    Although the palace lost its role as an official seat of power in 1789, during the 19th century it embraced a new destiny, becoming the Museum of French History at the instigation of Louis-Philippe, who ascended to the throne in 1830. Many of the palace’s rooms became the home to collections tracing the major events in French history, collections which were added to until the early 20th century.
