Presentation

Montbauron and Montreuil are disctricts of Versailles, located next to the main avenue of the city, Avenue de Paris, leading to the Palace.
Montbauron district
It is overhanged by Montbauron hill and delimited by the different avenues of Versailles (Paris, Saint Cloud and Europe), and seems like a tiny village of cobblestone lanes around a main square, Charost square.
In the midst of the city, you will find the former place of four tanks, builted in 1686 to collect water from the surrounding ponds. By now, only two of the four tanks exist and one still functioning for the fountains of the Palace.

Montreuil district
It have been related to Versailles only on 1787. Therefore, it was developed apart of the main area, around the Saint-Symphorien church, a great example of the neoclassical style, and keeps the beauty of a village. It was also in this part of the town, under the reign of Louis XIV, the Italians musicians were settled down, to join the Music of the Royal Chapel.
Its closeness to the Palace was also a selection criterion for some important court ladies in the XVIII century, to rest away from the Royal Court, as the Madame Elisabeth's estate, king Louis XVI's sister. You will enjoy its beautiful garden !
