The Fountains Night Show Versailles
From 21/06/2014 to 13/09/2014
Throughout the summer, the gardens of the Château de Versailles come alive every Saturday under the amazed eyes of their visitors.
Like every year, ponds and groves of Chateau de Versailles will play with water and colours between 9pm and 11pm.
Louis XIV asked in 1666 the creation of the Fountains show of Versailles. Versailles was built on marshland; water delivery from Lake Clagny had been done through a pump driven by two horses. Now, the hydraulic system is in closed circuit. The water of the Grand Canal is electrically pumped which restocks reservoirs in addition of rainwater.
It is in front of the Grand Canal that will be launched the fireworks that close the evening at 11:05pm. An amazing show orchestrated by Groupe F.
