Photographer's Note

The facade of the interior court of the Palace of Versailles.

The Palace of Versailles began as a modest hunting lodge. Then Louis XIV enlarged and enrobed the old lodge, turning it into the great Chateau we know today. In 1837, Louis-Philippe converted the whole deal to a museum of French History.
World war I was ended here with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.
The Palace is a UNESCO's World Heritage Site.
