The Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is a stunning baroque French palace located 34 miles (55km) southeast of Paris. It was bought and extended by Nicolas Fouquet, who became the Sun King, Louis XIV’s superintendent of finances and was an influential member of his court. In order to create the palace he dreamed of, he had to purchase and demolish 3 villages, but in the end, his extravagance was his downfall - he was arrested after a party got out of hand, leading to accusations of him misusing public funds. The château and its grounds have been open to the public since 1968, and while it’s less well-known than Versailles, it’s comparably magnificent.
