L'espace Richaud

Espace Richaud Versailles
After VDP returned from her last break, she finally got the chance to visit the dome of newly restored former royal hospital Richaud (to see the building going from ruin to its present state click here). It is a gorgeous space which now serves as exhibition and concert hall!

Après son retour de vacances, VDP a enfin eu l'occasion de visiter l'espace Richaud, dans l'ancien hôpital royal (les billets antérieurs, de la ruine à l'état actuel sont par ici). C'est un endroit absolument splendide qui servira désormais de lieu d'exposition et concerts !

Reminds me of the rotunda in Washington D.C.'s National Gallery of Art.
