Versailles Water Fountains – Paris Highlights

On select days the water fountains at the French Palace of Versailles are turned on and synchronised with music. Our path through the sprawling gardens took us to the mirror fountain (bassin de miroir).

On days when the fountains are active, there is an additional entry fee. Given our experience of two playing fountains, it is difficult to justify.

Onlookers watch the fountain perform.

The mirror fountain performs with the music Jeux d’Eau playing from loud speakers in the surrounding vegetation. My short film does not use the original music.
