We also saw tourists exploring the salt marshes in the bay, carefully watched over so they return before the tide starts coming back.

The palace was occupied by the royal family by King Louis XIV, King Louis XV and King Louis XVI between 1722-1789 after which Louis XVI was forced to move to Tuileries Palace (The Louvre) by the people, after which he and his wife Marie Antoinette lost their heads.
