Hidden doors, secret passages, private studies, libraries and apartments… the palace holds concealed quarters in which French kings and queens once sought refuge, far from court stuffiness. This intimate Versailles stands alongside the official Versailles: the ten meter-high ceilings of the Hall of Mirrors hide up to three entresol levels, stacked up in a way that defies imagination. Shutting away the traces of regal memories, these doors now open specially for us.
