Known by many names like Chapels of Versailles, Palace of Versailles, and more, the Royal Chapel is the fifth chapel considering the history of the royals of Versailles. The first was from the time of Louis XIII, and was a simple 2 storeyed model. The second came in 1669, 4 years after the first was destroyed, while the third followed soon after, in the year 1682. With changes being made to the castle, the third chapel had to be destructed, and a fourth one came to take its place. What we see today is the fifth, and the final chapel that serves the royals. This church was consecrated in 1710 and is dedicated to the patron saint of the Bourbons, Saint Louis.

Royal Chapel Reviews & Ratings
Royal chapel with magnificent vaulted ceilings. Evolved with the palace. Fifth chapel of the palace, important for royal events like marriages etc. Integral part if the Royal life.
It is off limits to normal visitors and can only be visited as part of a guided tour. Normal visitors can only view it through a small door in one of the rooms on the upper floor. As expected, the entrance gets pretty crowded but it is worthwhile to wait for your turn and take a few photos. Unfortunately only the upper floor and the ceiling of the chapel can be viewed from here.
The present chapel of the Palace of Versailles is the fifth in the history of the palace. These chapels evolved with the expansion of the château and formed the focal point of the daily life of the court during the Ancien Régime (Bluche, 1986, 1991; Petitfils, 1995; Solnon, 1987).
Nice but not allowed to walk inside which was unexpected
Nice chapel in the palace
