Like Leonardo da Vinci, you are invited to the Royal Château of Amboise.

The Château of Amboise was a major place of inspiration for Leonardo da Vinci who stayed in Amboise (1516-1519), on the invitation of the sovereign François 1er. In particular, he created a famous sketch of the royal château in 1517.

The creative garden

Visitors are invited to draw inspiration from the décor in the royal loggia and from the exceptional panoramas in the royal château's gardens. Easels and over-sized frames have therefore been made available in the château gardens, so that visitors can give free rein to their interpretations of the site and the Florentine master's works.
