Palace of Versailles
Imagine the pomp and circumstance of a by-gone era when you enter France's Palace of Versailles, a building that has provided the backdrop to centuries of political intrigue. Originally constructed as a pseudo country retreat for the French rulers, the city of Paris has now expanded to such a degree that it is more of an outlying suburb than anything else. It also represents perhaps the most historically significant building in all of France, as it has transcended itself into the ultimate symbol of the French monarchy and all that it has entailed - from guillotines to the infamous iron mask.
