Versailles was the home of the French monarch from the time of Louis XIV to Louis XVI. The palace stands today as an icon of nobility and artistic triumph .
The Britannica encyclopedia states that under the guidance of Louis XIV (reigned 1643–1715), the residence was transformed (1661–1710) into an immense and extravagant complex surrounded by stylized French and English gardens. Every detail of its construction was intended to glorify the king. The additions were designed by such renowned architects as Jules Hardouin-Mansart, Robert de Cotte, and Louis Le Vau. Charles Le Brun oversaw the interior decoration. Landscape artist André Le Nôtre created symmetrical French gardens that included ornate fountains with “magically” still water, expressing the power of humanity—and, specifically, the king—over nature.
Today with nearly ten million visitors every year, Versailles is one of the most historic sites in the world. Click below to take a virtual tour of 30 World Heritage Sites.
