The Versailles Musical Fountains Show: Part 3 of 4

The groves of Versailles were designed during Louis XIV’s reign as open-air drawing rooms concealed at the heart of the wooded areas of the gardens. One went there for refreshments and light meals, to listen to music or dance. The King could satisfy his taste for gambling and performing arts in these venues intended solely for entertainment and celebrations. This garden is decorated with fountains, vases and statues accessed through discreet walks, these groves bring surprise and creativity within the Royal Garden.

Here is a picture of my map of the garden:
