Palace of Versailles, France 🇫🇷 The Glass Room in the Palace of Versailles is perhaps the most famous room in this magnificent lavish Palace. It was here in 1918 that the treaty of Versailles, which put an end to the WW1, was signed.
Walking across this large gallery is like walking arcoss a dream. The 357 mirrors, across 17 arches and the awe inspiring teardrop shaped chandeliers are a sight to behold.
The Glass Room is one of the most lavishly decorated rooms in Versailles and that’s saying something, especially since the entire Palace is as opulent as a Palace can be. This room showcases Louis XIV’s first 18 years on the throne and the propserity that came with it.
Previosuly there used to be a terrace here with access to the garden beyond. However this arrangement was rather awkward. When the Sun King’s favourite architect tookover, Hardouin-Mansart added in this Room of Glass.
