From the seat of power to a museum of the history of France
A place of intimacy
The art of perspective
The Coach Gallery
A large-scale restoration thanks to the patronage of the Philanthropia Foundation. Undertaken by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in 1687 and completed in 1710 by Robert de Cotte, the Royal Chapel of Versailles is probably the most advanced expression of the great royal style Louis XIV commissioned.
The organ of the Royal Chapel sits on the gallery above the altar in a splendid array of gilding and sculpted decoration. Its fascinating history, which began in 1679 long before the construction of the final chapel, continues today thanks to the skilled hands of those who play and maintain it.
