The Chateau of Versailles remains forever the emblematic symbol of Louis XIV, whose reign lasted for almost half a century.
It is recognized as one of the most beautiful works of art of the 17th century France. The most symbolic of the rooms is no doubt the Hall of Mirrors.
During the next century, under the reign of Louis XV, the Chapel and the Opera were completed.
The Chateau ceased to function as the seat of official power in 1789 with the French Revolution.
This program presents a tour of the many rooms and works of art inside of France's national treasure.
The Orangery at the Chateau of Versailles was designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in the 17th century.
