This is outstanding, and it's not even the main palace. What luxury they surrounded themselves with! I do like the design here. I think it's delightful and not just ostentatious. I'd love to see it someday.

Beautiful. «Louis» didn't visit this when he lived in France, so he appreciates your posts on the Trianon.

This building truly shows how each piece of space, no matter how small, can be worked upon into a work of art. It is truly an act of respect to see everything as something special that has been molded and designed by the influence of directed energy.
