12/30.- Chateau of Versailles, lamp of the Hall of Mirrors


In this photo you can see one of the lamps in detail. The hall is 73 meters long. Large windows on one side of the room, and large mirrors on the other side have a multiplying effect. The room seems to be much wider than it actually is. The walls are decorated with marble, gilded bronze capitals and sculptures.

The Hall of Mirrors not only played a key role during the ancient regime, it also played an important role at the end of the World War I. Germans signed here the Treaty of Versailles, which put an end to this war.
