Event information

The Versailles Palace + Audio guide

The Versailles Palace is undoubtedly one of the most pretentious displays of power and ostentation in all of France. In fact, the gardens that surround it are considered an authentic work of art and as a World Heritage Site.

Built in the 17th century, this place has become one of the main signs of identity of the country. It was initially constructed to serve as a private hunting ground for Louis XIII.

However his son and heir to the crown Louis XIV, more commonly known as the Sun King, decided to transform it into a monumental castle reflecting the main architectural and artistic French trends of the time. The extravagance of the palace is particularly apparent in the Gallery of Mirrors, a hall more than 75 metres long with a collection of unique mirrors creating a magnificent array of light reflections.

 In addition, it was also the place where the Treaty of Versailles was signed, ending the First World War. Both the castle and the outstanding gardens surrounding it were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO many years ago. In addition, the French government have recently started a restoration process to be completed in 2020, valued at 400 million euros. Consequently, it is possible that at the time of your visit you will see some areas with scaffolding.

With the help of an audio guide, you will be able to explore the 700 rooms, 67 steps and abundance of artwork that makes up the Versailles Palace, making sure you don´t miss a single corner of the beautiful site.
