Royal castle of Amboise

Royal castle of Amboise

The craddle of the Renaissance

The Chateau of Amboise, one of the first truly "royal residences of its kind, was built during the 15th and the 16th centuries on the orders of Charles VIII, Louis XII and Franyois I. Following in the footsteps of the great kings of France, you will discover a magnificent example of Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Today, the chateau still houses an exceptional collection of furniture which has been admirably preserved.

The final residence of Ieonardo da Vinci

It was at Amboise that Leonardo da Vinci lived out his last years. Thanks to the kings patronage, this remarkable genius was able to devote himself to his final concerns and objects of study until his death on 2 May 1519. His body now rests in the Chateaus chapel of St Hubert, an elegant 15th century building in the flamboyant Gothic style.

Panoramic gardens : a royal view

Dominating the city of Amboise, the gardens of the chateau offer one of the most splendid views of the Loire Valley.
