Description

At the tour of Loire Valley castles, you will see several very beautiful castles. "The Castle of Six Ladies" is a Renaissance style Chenonceau Castle which has always belonged to women. It was built in 1513 by Katherine Briçonnet, and successively embellished by Diane de Poitiers, Catherine de Medici and Madame Dupin. In the Chateau de Chenonceau's history does not have murders and evil events, though intrigue was certainly apparent. The castle is surrounded by a vast, 70 hectares large park.The floral decoration of the perfect and magnificent gardens of Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medicis must be changed each year in the spring and summer, as 130,000 bedding plants are planted.

Chambord Castle is a glorious and beautiful building decorated in Renaissance style. It is the largest château in the Loire Valley: 156 meters in length, 56 meters in height, 426 rooms and spaces (90 of which are open to the public), 282 fireplaces and 77 staircases. The building of the château was begun by Francis I in 1519. He wanted to build a castle, combining traditional French style with an Italian Renaissance style. One of the most striking monuments of the castle is the famous "double revolution" staircase, a carved ornament recognized as a Renaissance masterpiece. It consists of two spirals which cross over each other.

The first thing that catches your eye when you get to Amboise is a powerful stone wall, overhanging the Loire. This is The Royal Château of Amboise - a medieval castle built in the 15th-16th centuries. After some extensive renovations in 1431, the castle became a favorite royal residence.

The very famous Italian sculptor Leonardo da Vinci brought glory to the city – it was here that he spent the last three years of his life. King Francis I of France invited Leonardo da Vinci and provided with a very comfortable castle the "Clos Lucé". Leonardo da Vinci died at the castle Château du Clos Lucé on May 2, 1519, at age 67. Today, in the Clos Lucé castle, you can see the restored sketches of Leonardo inventions including models of a helicopter, swing bridge, tanks, paddle boats, machine gun, water wheel etc.
