North Parterre

“One shall then move on to the Pyramid, and pause for a moment. Then one shall approach the chateau once again by way of the marble staircase between the Knifegrinder and the kneeling Venus, turn around at the top of the steps to take in the North Parterre, the statures, vases, crowns, the Pyramid, and what can be seen of Neptune. One shall then leave the garden through the same door one used to enter it.”
Louis XIV in his “Manner of presenting the gardens Versailles”
