The gardens often host important cultural, social, and political events. Covering more than 500 hectares (1,235 acres), this World Heritage site's 150 buildings were constructed between 1730 and 1916.

  • Beautiful gardens with a large fountain. Very nice to enjoy and take a walk along. We had some sunshine, so things could not be netter.  more »
  • The gardens are grand even with most statues covered for the winter. I am sure in the season one could walk for hours exploring the grounds. Highly recommend to see.  more »
