Gorgeous Versailles, a look at the beautiful details


Versaille is overwhelming in it’s grandeur, and the crowds can put a damper on the experience.  For me, I fount the true beauty in the amazing details and amount of details, as opposed to it’s  overall size and opulence.

The Battles Gallery had an absolutely beautiful ceiling, which you can see in the photo above and the two photos below.

So pretty!

A gorgeous cabinet painted with birds

I loved the carving of these chairs…

I think these gold floral ornaments are so beautiful…does anyone know what flower or plant they are meant to represent?

Candelabras from the Hall of Mirrors. We waited forever to get this shot because of the giant herd of people walking through!

A beautiful medallion.

Some amazing ornate carving…

A small, subsidiary building..not sure what it is, but I loved the tree outside of it.

The grounds were very expansive and beautifully kept

Has anyone here been to Versailles?  What was your favorite part?
