The golden door of Versailles

In front of the castle, the closing gold which had disappeared since the Revolution has been reconstituted. It took several years of study and two years of work to transform fifteen tons of pure iron and 100 000 gold leaves of lilies in bloom, horns of plenty, Apollon masks and crowns. Without forgetting the loose capitals of L cross representing the figure of Louis XIV. The gold lace form the grid that now surrounded the royal court of Versailles palace. More specifically, the enclosure, whose central portal was unveiled yesterday morning, again separates the different courses leading to the residence of the Sun King. It is, indeed, the return of the grid created in the years 1680 under the direction of Jules Hardouin-Mansart and who had disappeared during the Revolution.  From the close of origin, it is still nothing that carved two groups, Peace and Abundance of the Tuby and Coysevox. "But it was very well documented, which allowed a refund faithful," said Frederic Didier, chief architect of historical monuments in charge of the castle. While some called into question the relevance of its recreation, it was decided to restore the grid, particularly to enable the facility to reorganize the flow of its millions of visitors. "And this great book makes its symbolic force in this space in front of the castle, said Jean-Jacques Aillagon, president of the area. Versailles is the remains of a king and the scheduling was intended to demonstrate that it approached its sacred person. " Produced through the sponsorship of the group Monnoyeur, business services related to building and public works, its return has cost 5 million. It will be officially inaugurated on July 8 and already visitors are caught in the photo in front of his glittering bars. But since the grid will remain close, they borrow from today the new access to the castle. Pending the finalization of the reorganization home in Versailles, a flag of temporary entry, while glass and wood, was built on the plans of architects Yves Pagès and the Benedict Thierry d'Ennequin. It was made possible through the sponsorship of competence group Vinci.
