The gardens and the park of the Palace of Versailles are found in Versailles, in the south-west of Paris. Both have been named World Heritage Sites by Unesco. Welcoming around 10 million visitors every year. Louis XIV considered the gardens of equal importance to the Palace itself and wanted it to live up to the same scale. In 1661, he put architect André Le Nôtre in charge of creating his new marvel, having already proved himself capable through his celebrated works in the Tuileries gardens and the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte. Assisted by Colbert, Le Brun and Mansart, Le Nôtre created his French Versailles gardens across a ninety hectare surface, forming part of a park made up of some eight hundred hectares. This enormous project lasted forty years despite having the best men on the job. It was necessary to adjust the bayous surrounding the castle and to plant adult trees that had been taken from different parts of France. Other than the castle, the park is a sublime setting to see various other buildings, the Grand Trianon, the Petit Trianon, the Temple of Love, the Hameau de la Reine Marie-Antoinette (the Queen's Hamlet), the Grand Canal and the Orangerie. Versailles gardens include two thousand ponds and fountains, three hundred and fifty thousand trees, and every year three hundred thousand flowers are planted. Versailles is truly an open air museum enriched with white marble statues, sculptures and vases. Each summer, the musical fountain show provides a unique way to discover the fountains and botanical life, with their waters flowing to the rhythm of the music. Also, not to be missed, is the Royal Gardens musical fountain show at nightfall, lit up as the sun disappears, this is a surprising visual and audio treat.
