In the summer of 1743, the king of France placed the first stone of what would become the Cathedrale Saint-Louis, which holds guests under the warmly lit arches of the nave to this day. The elegant architecture is symmetrical around the traditional form of a Latin cross, and a lovely perspective of the ensemble is visible from the Jardin du Roi at Versailles .
