Cathédrale Saint Louis, Versailles

4.1
#10 of 16 in Historic Sites in Versailles
Built between 1743 and 1754, Cathédrale Saint Louis was first used as the parish church of Saint Louis before becoming the cathedral of the new diocese. During your visit, be sure to check out the lovely collection of period paintings preserved in a graceful baroque style. The architecture is nothing to scoff at either--the building is of the mid-18th century, and the first stone was laid by Louis XV in 1743.

  • The Cathedral is very successfully at the intersection. Seen from the road leading to the Palace. Inside, but the outside is beautiful.

  • Symbolic place but the inside is fairly simple. Little explanation and layout of the site.

Where to stay in Versailles

Though you can visit the palace of Versailles on a day trip from Paris, travelers interested in exporing outside the château should consider staying in the town of Versailles, Rambouillet, or Fontainebleau. All three of these boast historical centers and a number of accommodations for visitors, from swanky hotels to short-term apartment rentals. You may want to avoid the other nearby towns, like Senlis, which don't offer any lodging in their old town centers. To put yourself within walking distance of the grand palace, pick a spot along the main avenue in the town of Versailles. When staying here, you can experience first-hand what city planners took into consideration when building this new capital.
