  • Description

    PARIS, 10th June, 1966: The palace of the Grand Trianon at Versailles was reopened today by President de Gaulle after restored at a cost of about 50 million francs. The palace which stands in the grounds of the palace of Versailles was built in the seventeenth century by Louis XIV and has been described as a "masterpiece" of the period. It has been restored and partly rebuilt by hundreds of craftsmen who also installed hundreds of power points for television, air conditioning and three hundred and fifty telephones. The Grand Trianon will now be used as an official residence for visiting heads of State and for the French President. Part of it will be a public museum.

    President de Gaulle attended the reception held for the reopening and personally received the hundreds of guests.
