    Hi there… I was quite busy but finally here is something new to share

    This is really an amazing place, a former royal residence about 1hour far from my hometown, one of the largest royal residences in the world, comparable in size and structures to those of Versailles.
    During the Napoleonic domination, the whole complexes were turned into barracks and the gardens destroyed to create a training ground.
    Restoration works were begun and will last ages! Anyway in 2007 was open for tourism.
    I was really lucky visiting in early morning with a good light and with few literally none visitors around instead of thousands.
    Behind the palace… land art works and … huge gardens…. will follow next post ….
