Before undergoing the huge transformation, the Palace of Versailles was originally a hunting lodge. However, during the 17th century, Louis XIV decided to radically change his hunting lodge into what is known today as one the most extravagant palaces in the world!
Fundamentally a symbol of absolute power, this project was designed to impress and make other monarchs feel inferior to the King of France. After series of enlargements, counting thousands of workers put to the task, the palace has over 2300 rooms, as well as gardens covering 815 hectares, which were designed to show the King’s power over nature.
This grandiose residence became a host to grand festivities and entertainments. From 1682, it was the main residence for the French court and government. The works went on for 40 years, long after the death of Louis XIV and saw the likes of Molière and Lully pass by, which gave a cultural side to the Palace of Versailles. Inside the Palace, you will have the opportunity to admire the famous Hall of Mirrors, where the Treaty of Versailles was signed!
