Musée du Domaine royal de Marly - Saint Germain Boucles de Seine
Musée du Domaine royal de Marly
The residence of Louis XIV - Discovering the other "Palais du Roi-Soleil".
"The King, tired of the beautiful and the crowd, convinced himself that he sometimes wanted the small and the solitude" Saint-Simon. This is how Marly was born!
The museum of the Royal Estate of Marly reveals the history of this chateau with atypical architecture, 12 pavilions framing a 13th ... that of the king of course!
The works reveal the symbolism of the buildings, the layout of the gardens with regard to the remains visible in the park.
This hunting residence was also a "water palace": the fountains in the garden were powered by Marly's machine, then considered to be the "8th wonder of the world". The route reveals the secrets of how this machine, a gigantic wooden mechanism, worked, pumping water from the Seine and transporting it almost two kilometers further to supply water to the gardens of Marly and then Versailles.
Every day throughout the year.
