             Over the course of four building campaigns, Louis XIV converted a hunting lodge built by Louis XIII into the spectacular Palace of Versailles.
          Versailles became a dazzling, awe-inspiring setting for state affairs and the reception of foreign dignitaries.

                                                                                                                                      ******

          It is only around the 1660s that the young Louis XIV started to grace Versailles with his presence, to renovate it and give receptions there.

          The most considerable works done by the Sun King in the Palace started in 1678, when he decided to make of Versailles his government's Headquarters. Jules Hardouin-Mansart, first architect of the King, directed the construction of the dazzling Hall of Mirrors, decorated under Charles Le Brun.

          The Castle took its definitive appearance with the construction of the north and south wings to lodge princes and courtiers, along with works outside : royal stables, Grand Commun, the somptuous Orangerie ... The works were not even achieved that the court was already there, on May 6th, 1682.
