The Château du Clos Lucé, last home of Leonardo da Vinci in Amboise

It was at the Château du Clos Lucé, on the invitation of François I, that Leonardo da Vinci spent the last three years of his life, devoting his time to perfecting his inventions.

Prolific and inspired, he worked as an engineer, architect, even as the entertainment coordinator, organizing lavish festivities for the Court.

In his residence just 300 meters from the Château Royal, he drew up plans for a model château for François I in Romorantin, and designed the double helix staircase in the Château de Chambord.

The Château du Clos Lucé is now a cultural park where visitors can get a better insight into the Italian Master's universe.
