LE MARAIS AND VERSAILLES :
JE T’AIME, MOI NON PLUS

blank

Dear PARISMARAIS reader !

The Marais, the most stylish neighborhood in 17th century Paris, would never be the same after the reign of Louis XIV. The Sun King, who did so much to make France the power in Europe, inadvertently cast a shadow on the Marais.

Louis’s reign was defined by prestige, glamour and glory. In deciding to move to Versailles, he shifted the center of power southwest, about 25 kilometers from Paris, to his magnificent palace, showcasing splendid gardens and fountains, a stunning hall of mirrors, but above all, his absolute power. Versailles became the hub of refinement and the king was at its center.

As time went on, Parisian high-society began to flock to the Left Bank, an easier commute to Versailles. This was toward the end of the 17th century, after the king officially moved his court in 1682. And so the elegant quarter of the 18th century sprang up around the grand and incongruent church of St. Sulpice and its surroundings and the Marais went into decline… Until 50 years ago when it was saved from destruction by André Malraux, former minister of Culture.

Louis XIV was surrounded by a flock of talented artists and favored the emergence of new styles as well as trends. Even today, the Palace of Versailles encourages creativity in all forms, devoting some of its most emblematic and prestigious spaces, such as the Hall of Mirrors in particular, to contemporary artists of international significance such as Jeff Koons, Murakami, Vasconcelos and Penone this year.This summer, from June 11 to October 30, Versailles will host many baroque concerts. Approximately thirty concerts are scheduled, providing an opportunity to discover the different sides of baroque music such as Marc Antoine Charpentier and Jean Philippe Rameau.

The night shows, every Saturday night are an exquisite moment of discovery where you’ll be walking around the park and discovering at every corner a new surprising light show including lasers, fire works, illuminated fountains and much more to enjoy while listening to Lully’s masterpieces.

Versailles has so much to offer this season we can only recommend you to check their complete program not to miss anything:
