Saturday, December 22, 2007
It was Sunday and we took the opportunity to visit Versailles with its famous palace and gardens, to get there you have to take the train, the RER known in France, the journey takes half an hour. Another option is to book an excursion to the Palace of Versailles with a guide in Spanish and by bus.
The palace was ordered to build the monarch Luis XIII in 1623. We visited the interior of the castle that is huge, it is worth mentioning the Gallery of Mirrors, the most impressive room of the Palace of Versailles, and that served as an example room for the signature of the Treaty of Versailles.
Inside the palace, there are also the Halls of Peace and War and the rooms of the king and queen, in addition to the Queen's Chamber, which is preserved as left by Marie Antoinette after leaving Versailles in 1789. Also The Chapel is important, where Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI attended daily Mass, and the Opera is a surprise, a place where monarchs enjoyed concerts for their entertainment.
What most attracts attention are the gardens that are immense where there are a lot of ponds, fountains and forests. The views of the outside of the palace towards the gardens are the most beautiful.
We went to eat and after a few intense days played the farewell of the romantic Paris. Au revoir Paris.
