At the heart of the Renaissance town of Amboise and its charming cobbled streets lies the Château Royal d'Amboise. Charles VIII was the real architect when he chose to transform this medieval residence into a Gothic château. François I, the great Renaissance king, spent much of his childhood here under the protection of his uncle Louis XII and his wife Anne of Brittany.
The famous Italian genius and faithful friend of Francis I, Leonardo da Vinci, is buried in the château's chapel, a stone's throw from his final resting place at Le Clos-Lucé. From its terraces, the Château Royal d'Amboise offers exceptional views over the Loire and the town.
!! The Saint Hubert chapel, where Leonardo da Vinci's tomb is located, is currently undergoing renovation work, so it is not possible to visit the interior.
