  • Magnificent Chapel, perfectly restored, you must visit within the guided tour, where explain you everything perfectly. Profusely decorated, paintings, ceilings and coffered ceilings, are worthy of mention.

  • Especially do not "prestige VIP" tickets for the concerts in the Royal Chapel of the Palace of Versailles because there is no difference in service with a ticket 1st prize! Apart from this, beautiful place, perfect sound.
