The Palace of Versailles is one of the most beautiful works of art by the French in the 17th century.

It started out as a hunting pavilion for King Louis XIII. Louis XIV, his son, moved the French government to the palace in 1682 and brought the Court here. Kings afterwards kept on adding to the palace, gardens, and park around it, making it the beautiful, elegant palace and grounds that it is today.

Over 2,300 rooms make up this vast palace, which hold many stunning treasures inside and outside, including a room filled with gold and mirrors, and a huge garden with beautiful statues, flora, and ponds all over.
