The Grand Trianon (French pronunciation: ​[ɡʁɑ̃ tʁijanɔ̃]) is a French Baroque style château situated in the northwestern part of the Domain of Versailles in Versailles, France. It was built at the request of King Louis XIV of France as a retreat for himself and his maîtresse-en-titre of the time, the Marquise de Montespan, and as a place where he and invited guests could take light meals (collations) away from the strict étiquette of the royal court. The Grand Trianon is set within its own park, which includes the Petit Trianon (a smaller château built in the 1760s, during the reign of King Louis XV).

  • Beautiful! Definitely worth the walk from Versailles, especially since the gardens were so lovely. And the ride back on the train was fun, too.
  • Famous historical site. Beautiful and sad place where Hungary lost 2/3 of the country on the 4th June 1920.
