With a drop of 80% in attendance the Establishment’s revenue is severly affected. However, the Palace of Versailles has to continue its activities and to assume routine maintenance costs of around 15 million euros per year (gardening, watering, roofing, heating...). It is equally crucial to keep running great site projects such as the restoration of the Royal Chapel and the Dauphin’s Apartments or the replanting of the Queen’s grove, which cannot be postponed anymore.
