The chapel was mostly roped off due to construction but what you could see was very impressive. It was the main reason I came to Versailles. I'm sure once it's finished it ill be very impressive!

The Chapel was beautiful on the ground floor, and lavishly appointed by the French Kings. The view of the chapel from the upstairs private balcony of the Royal Family (which used it to worship apart from common folk literally below them) was interesting as well.

It is difficult to imagine how amazing this is especially because it’s not the main attraction. This would have been nice even if it was a stand-alone place but to think it was inside a palace! Too bad that it was closed for reconstruction (late...More
