In 1666, Louis XIV laid down the precise itinerary to be followed when visiting Le Nôtre’s gardens. The Fountain Show follows a path that is closely in line with the itinerary defined by the Sun King.
To symbolise his renown, Louis XIV identified himself with the God of Light, Apollo, and became the Sun King. This allegory can be seen everywhere in André Le Nôtre’s gardens. The fourteen groves laid out on either side of the perspective are delightful theatres where people could listen to the works of Lully and Molière. The splendour of the fountains during the water shows and the brilliant marriage between sculpture and nature add to the magic of the site.
