The Palace of Versailles, located in city of Versailles, 15 km southwest of Paris, France, served French court for 107 years (1682-1789). This is a gem of French art. The building and decoration are very artistic, and now first floor has been turned into an art museum, as well as a place where French leaders meet with important foreign heads of state and envoys.

At same time, Le Vau built new palaces on western, northern, and southern sides of hunting palace to surround original hunting palace; in 1710, construction of entire Palace of Versailles and gardens was completed, and it immediately became largest, most majestic and magnificent palace in Europe. The most luxurious palace building, and soon became center of noble activity, center of art and birthplace of culture and fashion in France and Europe .
