Overview

In the summer of 1743, the king of France placed the first stone of what would become the Cath├ędrale Saint-Louis, which holds guests under the warmly lit arches of the nave to this day. The elegant architecture is symmetrical around the traditional form of a Latin cross, and a lovely perspective of the ensemble is visible from the Jardin du Roi at Versailles. The artwork filling the Cath├ędrale includes paintings, sculptures, and stained glass windows; the sculpted wood throne dates from the 18th Century. The marvelous organs, created by Clicquot a few years after construction was completed, were restored in the 19th Century.
