Château de Versailles

This palace lies in the Parisian suburbs that once were a countryside retreat for French aristocrats. This grand palace was once the center of political power in France, and it remains today as a symbol of the monarchy.

Versailles has long been a tourist attraction because of the grand scale of the palace itself, and the expansive gardens whose verdant green lawns, which are broken only by large fountains and perfectly-straight rows of trees. Inside the palace is a museum with a massive collection of sculptures, paintings and engravings.
