Beyound the Golden Gates, you'll dicover that the Grand Trianon is indeed a 'little palace of marble and porphyry with delightful gardens'.
Make that a little palace of pink marble with two wings adorned with columns and an ornamental and flower garden.
Though Jules Mansart was responsible for the architecture, it was really Louis XIV who oversaw the landscaping. Hmm, pink marble and flowery gardens, his taste does run along effiminate lines, doesn't it;) ???
