La cathédrale Saint-Louis / The Cathedral Saint-Louis
The Cathedral Saint-Louis of Versailles, built by the architect Jacques Hardouin-Mansart de Sagonne, under Louis XV. The construction was very slow and was indeed ended only twelve years later. It was blessed in August, 1754, chosen as cathedral in the French and finally dedicated Revolution cathedral in 1843. The facade, decorated with Doric and Corinthian columns, is thrown by two bell towers. A dome of 65 m. of an arrow in the shape of baluster is put over the crossing of the transept.
