Le Château de Versailles #3

The construction of the Royal Chapel started in 1689, in 1710 it was finally consecrated. During the 18th century it witnessed many court events, as for instance the wedding of Louis XVI to Marie-Antoinette. This photo shows the chapel from the "tribune royale" where the king and members of the royal family heard the mass.

  1. The château is beyond adjectives with its over-the-top elegance and architecture, but my favorite features are the almost uncountable fountains. Very nice photos of this landmark
