Nice backyard, France

Since Louis wasn't allowed to leave France, ransoms of captured kings being what they were in those days, he thought he'd bring a little of Venice to him... by having his gardeners dig a small version of the Grand Canal. Despite how overwhelming large the grounds of Versailles are today, they are only a small fraction of what they once were. When Louis said "mine," he pretty much meant everything he could see.
