Back in time big halls were fashion.
They were a way to connect all the different appartments.

This fabulous Halls is situated inside the Castle of Versailles.

The King wanted to build one even in Versailles, for this reason between 1678 and 1684 he decided to build one. closing the new castle terrace.
The big Hall was designed using architectual lines from the new castle for a lenght of 73 meters.

All the decorations inside the Hall have been done by Charles Le Brun.
