Les écuries de la reine ou la Cour d'appel


Here's a better view of the Court of appeals housed in the queen's stables which I showed you and told you about yesterday. There are details of the palace façade on Artsy Versailles today.

Voici une meilleure vue du lieu dont je vous entretenais hier. Il y a des détails de la façade du château sur Artsy Versailles aujourd'hui.

get a better idea of the hugeness of the Court! And this was for the queen's horses?!!! Any idea approximately how many horses the queen had?

I cannot imagine going to court there. (Although, I would love to see the inside!)

Beautiful architecture.

It really looks more like a courthouse than a stable. Very nice photo!

Beautiful buildings and to think they were once horse stables!

I bet those horses had a better life than some of her subjects. Beautiful place though.

I would so love to see how different this scene would look back in the time when it was the queen's stables Ciel. It's a magnificent building perfect for something so serious.

I wonder if people going to court hear ghostly neighs :)

I wouldn't have thought it would be so large...a lot of people must think it is appealing. Or they're inside appealing. Are there any trees in the courtyard?

BTW, just put "Ciel" in the name spot. I'm hoping to figure out something different for comments.

The blue sky is perfect complement to the building.

You might want to consider cropping the pole.

I think the horses were the only happy to be there...
