Versailles - The Petit Trianon

The Petit Trainon  was built between 1762 and 1768 as a place for private use of Louis XV and Madame De Pompadour.  In 1774 Louis XVI gave it to Marie Antoinette and it became her favorite place to stay.   This is a side view. I forgot to take one from the front.

We all really enjoyed this tour. Not only is it beautiful but there were very few people there.
The grand stair case 

Do you see the M & A?  

This is a view from a window
Love the window latches
The Music Room - see Patsy in the mirror?
