Back when the south of Italy was the least wealthy part of the country and people struggled to feed their families, the King of Naples decided to build a grand palace. Construction of the Palace of Caserta was begun in 1752 and it was the largest European palace built in the 18th century. Charles wanted his very own Versailles and he came close to achieving it.
