Description

Glory restored.

At the Château of Versailles, the Grande Galerie, as it was known in the 17th century, was used daily as a place which people passed through, waited or met one another. It was used by courtiers and visitors alike. It was not usually the setting for ceremonies, only when the king wished to give a truly magnificent diplomatic reception or a stunning party.

After three long years of restoration work, the Hall of Mirrors in the Château of Versailles has been restored to its former glory.

The most eminent specialists, a team of 40 restorers in all, researched the techniques employed at the time of Versailles' construction, in order to give the mirrors and paintings a period look.

The smallest details were carefully attended to so that the Hall of Mirrors would appear as it was originally was intended. The new lighting highlights the beauty of the 54 chandeliers and 357 mirrors.
