11/30.- Chateau of Versailles, Hall of Mirrors


The Hall of Mirrors ('La Galerie des Glaces') is considered the most beautiful room in the Versailles Castle. It was constructed in 1678, soon after the signing of the Treaty of Nijmegen. Louis XIV asked Le Brun to depict himself in different poses in the ceiling of the chamber. He is shown as a Roman Emperor, as the leader of France and as a war victorious chief.

The decoration of this hall has impressed visitors since its construction. Everyday thousands of visitors are still marveled by the reflection of the mirrors on the walls of this long room.
