Explore The Royal Palace, The Palace, and more!

Staircaise at Chateau Versailles, Paris, France (first time I was there, I was a bratty teenager sleepy from jetlag and had no comprehension of what I was missing, right @tonifuscellero)

The Palace of Versailles, or simply Versailles, is a royal château in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. In French it is the Château de Versailles.

Very interesting palace and cold no wonder they wore so many clothes it was freezing in there of course snow was on the ground when I went there! Huge master bedroom huge!

The Royal Chapel of King Louis XIV. Enormous is scope, the entire complex is one of the most impressive I have ever seen. Multiple palaces (for the mistresses of the King mainly) and grounds complete with their own Venetian style canals and an Orangerie. The Sun King was perhaps nearly revered as a god among men, and requisite with this theme is a lack of Christian symbology anywhere in the multiple palaces, with the notable exception of the Royal Chapel.

Sainte-Chapelle

Sainte-Chappelle, Paris - The most beautiful building I've ever seen...and we just stumbled upon it. If you go to Paris, make sure you don't miss it. (You have to go upstairs to see this part of the chapel. We almost left and missed it because we didn't know there was more.)
