World Monuments Fund Presents

Watch Day: Potager du Roi

Each year, dozens of Watch Days are organized at World Monuments Watch sites by their communities to highlight the importance of local stewardship in the sustainable preservation of heritage sites.

In June 2019, thousands of visitors gathered at the Potager du Roi, the King's kitchen garden at the Palace of Versailles, to celebrate Watch Day and engage with the rich heritage of the 2018 World Monuments Watch site.
