Leonardo daVinci spent the last three years of his life in Amboise. He lived in the Chateau du Clos-Lucé seen below.
The park surrounding the chateau contains scale models of the designs that daVinci created such as the precurser to the helicopter in the foreground.
DaVinci died in Amboise in 1519 and his remains are buried in this little chapel on the grounds of the Chateau d'Amboise.
Only a small portion of the original chateau remains here in Amboise and it's not very interesting, but you get a great view of our apartment down below and the Loire river. The house was part of a convent that dates to 1493.
I love this tree on the grounds of the chateau
