This luxurious gallery, created by King Louis-Philippe in 1837, runs the entire length of the first floor in the South Wing. The 35 paintings on its walls, including St. Louis at the Battle of Taillebourg by Eugène Delacroix, Henri IV entering Paris by François Gérard and The Battle of Fontenoy  by Horace Vernet, illustrate the most important events in the military history of France, from the Battle of Tolbiac (496) to Wagram (1809).

Capacity: 600-800 people for seated meals or stand-up drinks.

Size: 120 m x 13 m.

Crusades Room

These five rooms are accessed from the ground floor gallery in the North Wing. They are decorated in the neo-Gothic style and depict the major episodes in the Crusades as seen by official painters of the 19th century. The coats-of-arms of the most illustrious crusaders decorate the ceiling and pillars.

The largest of these rooms (250 m²) has a capacity of 180-200 people for seated meals, 300-400 people for stand-up drinks.

Cotelle Gallery

This light, elegant gallery opens onto gardens on both sides. It is decorated with paintings by Jean Cotelle (1642-1708) depicting Versailles's Park and Groves in the reign of Louis XIV. The gallery is in the right wing of the Grand Trianon, the marble palace set in superb gardens, which the king commissioned from his architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart in 1687.

Capacity: 250 people for seated meals; 400 people for stand-up drinks. Excellent acoustics make it ideal for chamber music concerts.


Built between 1684 and 1686 by Jules Hardouin-Mansart to house rare trees and shrubs in the winter months, this exceptionally large building stands below the South Parterre, forming its retaining wall. Two huge staircases known as the One Hundred Steps flank the Orangery's three galleries, wich open onto a garden filled in summer with more than 1 200 exotic trees.
