What to expect
The Royal Castle of Amboise overlooks the Loire from its rocky plateau and its evocation is inseparable from that of Leonardo da Vinci. In fact, invited by François 1er to Amboise, the genius of the Renaissance stayed there for a few years (at the Château du Clos-Lucé) before passing away in 1519. But the history of the Château d' Amboise dates back to well before the Renaissance, since it became a royal residence after the reign of Louis XI but above all Charles VIII who developed and embellished the original building. And as with many other castles in the Loire Valley, François 1st invested in it in order to bring him architectural innovations from the Renaissance.
