The Royal Chapel

  • Chapelle Royale


The fruit of much reflection by the king's artists, the Royal Chapel can be considered the pinnacle of what Louis XIV achieved at Versailles.
Its graceful architecture and the predominance of sculpted decorations make it a remarkable testimony to the originality of French baroque art. Yet originally it was the setting for the sumptuous religious ceremonies of Court life, from the king's daily mass to the magnificent meetings of the Order of the Holy Spirit: and it is this that makes it the ideal place for rediscovering the wondrous creations of sacred music in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The chapel is no longer open to guided tours and its lower doors will be closed until the end of September. It remains visible from the outside from the floor.
