History of the Enclos de La Petite Venise (Little Venice)
Created in 1694, two years after the launching of the Grand Canal, this complex was intended to house the shipbuilding sheds. Warships from Marseille or Le Havre were assembled there, along with a more recreational flotilla. Indeed, the royal boating outings were made in gondolas imported from Venice, reflecting the court's fascination with the city of the Doges. The site of 'Little Venice', where the guild of sailors of Versailles was housed, dissolved after the Revolution, was transformed into stables under Louis-Philippe.
