Amboise Royal Castle
This castle is located on a hill overlooking the Loire River, the Ile d'Or, and the medieval town of Amboise. For fans Leonardo da Vinci, near the castle there is the small chapel of Saint-Hubert where the remains of this great scholar and artist lay at rest. He had spent a short time in the area, in the Castle Clos-Lucé under the invitation of Francis I. Although it has undergone many reconstructions, this castle played a key role in the region's history.
