1/30.- Welcome to Versailles!!!
Hi, welcome to Versailles!!! The Castle of
Versailles is one of the most famous heritage sites
in the world. In the following pages, you will have
the chance to virtually visit this famous
'Chateau'. We will visit the State Apartment of
Louis XIV, the Hall of Mirrors, the Apartments of
the Queen, the Crusades Museum, the Hall of
Battles, the Grand Trianon, the Petit Trianon; and
last, but not least, the public parks.
The Chateau and Gardens of Versailles definitely
represent the most prestigious monument of the 17th
century French Art. King Louis XIV transformed his
father's (Louis XIII) hunting lodge into the most
impressive castle of all times. The monarchs of
France governed their country from here till 1789,
when the unhappy people of France forced them to
leave this palace.
