Garden of Versailles
Louis the XIV so loved his orange trees that the l‘orangerie greenhouse was built even before his grand Palace of Versailles. In the warmer months, his beloved fruit trees were placed outside in their boxes to line the green spiraling lawn called the parterre de l’orangerie, one of the geometrical, manicured gardens that were in Vogue in France during the 1600s. Stroll by the orange trees and imagine Louis XIV plucking off fruit to share with Marie Antoinette.
