In 1783, the Chateau de VERSAILLES witnessed the first aerostatic flight in history. A hot air balloon belonging to the Montgolfier brothers ascended five hundred metres above the chateau gardens and remained there for eight minutes, making history in front of an astounded audience.
As the azure blue and gilded balloon rises into the air, the golden figurative gates frame the palace gardens. Apollo’s fountain stands at the head of the Royal Walk, overlooking the groves depicting gods and titans. Topiary line the allées dedicated to the seasons and broderie-filled parterres hide basins of mythological delight.
