The Golden Gates of Versailles

In 2008, more than 3 centuries after it was torn down during the French Revolution, The royal gates of Versailles was unveiled. The replica that took 2 years to finish is an 80-metre steel gate decorated with 100,000 gold leaves.

Today the Golden Gates stand proud welcoming visitors from all over the world.
