The Windows and Doors of Versailles

A small part of Le Chateau de Versailles - an external view:

Letting in the cool breeze:

La Grille D'Honneur as the King and Queen would have seen it, from the inside:

Marie Antoinette's route of escape out of her chamber:

A reflection, in the Hall of Mirrors:
Oh, to greet this window and its view every morning:
Light plays upon dark:
Archways that lead to...

The King's Chamber lies behind these oversized doors:

Still on the grounds of Le Chateau de Versailles, not the King's chamber...and richer, somehow: Our trip to Le Chateau de Versailles was without a doubt one of the most memorable parts of our trip.

Until next time...

Love Versailles! My first visit to V. is also one of the reasons why I've got into languages. It's a long story associates with a wonderfully skilled multilingual tour guide and the beauty of the place. Glad you enjoyed! Ciao. A.

I'm so glad you got to see this... all the glory... the patina of history...

I just went to Versailles to work today. There it was, the castle, standing at the end of the boulevard. As majestic as ever.

Thank you dear for your last comment! From my very heart.
