A year to celebrate Le Nôtre



A year to celebrate Le Nôtre

In 2013, the Palace of Versailles is paying tribute to André Le Nôtre, the creator of the Versailles gardens. Find out about the programme of exhibitions, restorations, shows and events.

Throughout 2013, the Palace of Versailles is paying tribute to André Le Nôtre, the creator of the Versailles gardens.

To mark the 400th anniversary of his birth, we are shining the spotlight on Louis XIV's gardener, the exceptional architect and landscaper, but also on the experienced art collector, friend and confidant of the king, and a man whose aesthetic sense continues to inspire creators all over the world.

Restoration work, exhibitions and performances will honour the genius of André Le Nôtre and the gardens of Versailles, his masterpiece.
