AMBOISE – Château Royal d’Amboise

Erected in the 15th and 16th century by the order of Charles VIII, Louis XII and François I, the Amboise castle was the first royal residence of the French Renaissance. Today it is a prestigious reminder of the Renaissance and shelters an exceptional furniture collection. Leonardo de Vinci, invited by King François I, died at Amboise on May 2, 1519. He is buried in the Saint-Hubert Chapel in the castle. Overlooking the city of Amboise, the castle gardens offer one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the Val de Loire.
