Desc. : The Versailles Orangery (French: L' Orangerie du Château de Versailles) was built by Jules Hardouin-Mansart between 1684 and 1686, that is to say, before work on the castle had even begun. It is under the flowerbed known as 'parterre du midi'. Its central gallery is 155 meters in length, and its frontage is directed towards the south. The central gallery is framed by two side galleries located under the “Escaliers des Cent Marches”. The whole is lit by large arched windows, which enclose the lower bed or the 'bed de l'orangerie'. In the winter, the Orangerie houses more than a thousand trees (mostly orange) in boxes. The “Parterre Bas” is bordered on its south side by a balustrade overlooking the Saint-Cyr-l'École. This separates it from the Swiss Pond. In the center of the Orangerie is a large circular pool, surrounded by six fields of grass. From May to October, the orange trees and other trees are exposed in the lower bed.
