UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site
The Palace of Versailles is famous throughout the world for its luxurious and imaginative architectural design. The primary attractions of the site are all located on the second floor of the main building. Perhaps the most famous one is the Hall of Mirrors. The Gallery of Great Battles is also one of the palace's highlights. The interior decoration in the gallery primarily features paintings of Louis XIV battling Spain and Germany. The palace grounds feature an extraordinarily large and gorgeously designed French garden with extremely symmetrical geometry. The Neptune Fountain can be considered the centerpiece of the gardens. To the north of the main building is the Latona Fountain; to the south of the main building are many attractions such as the orangerie and greenhouses.
