Chateau de Versailles

According to Wikipedia, the Palace (Château) of Versailles or simply known as Versailles, is a royal château (castle in French) in Versailles in the  e-de-France region of France. When the château was built, Versailles was a country village; today, however, it is a suburb of Paris, some 20 kilometres southwest of the French capital. In addition to the meticulous manicured lawns, parterres of flowers, and sculptures are located throughout the garden.

Unfortunately for us, when we visited Chateau de Versailles some parts of it were under renovation, so most of the areas were cordroned off. But for those areas that were accessible, it was lavishly decorated rooms, and beautiful gardens. The décor and architecture fancy. It was interesting to take a peak in to France’s royal history.

Definitely a must see, if you want to see how French royalty lived in the past and the interesting architecture and décor, or simply interested in history. The palace is adorned with furniture pieces that are eye-catching as well as colorful, with crystal chandeliers and beautiful paintings from ceilings and walls.
