Neptune and the Palace of Versailles in France

The Palace of Versailles (French: Château de Versailles) is a world-famous 17th-18th-century monumental complex, and a museum, situated in the town with the same name on the outskirts of Paris.

Located about 10 miles (16 kilometers) southwest of Paris, the palace is beside the settlement of Versailles. The town was little more than a hamlet before becoming the seat of royal power. By the time of the French Revolution, it had a population of more than 60,000 people, making it one of the largest urban centers in France.

With over 7 million visitors in 2017, the Palace of Versailles is today one of the most popular attractions in France, as well as a venue for special exhibitions, concerts, sports events, and site-specific art installations.
