France: royal aggregates for Versailles

12/10/2003

The pathways winding through the grounds of the Château de Versailles were restored using aggregates of all sizes from the Lafarge quarries in the Seine Valley. Selected by the architect in charge of historical monuments and the Chateau's head gardener, the aggregates were used in the area surrounding Neptune's Fountain and the pathways of the "Petit Parc", enjoyed by over 6 million visitors each year.
