Leonardo da Vinci

& CHATEAU DU CLOS LUCE

Plunge into the research and discoveries of a genius

Visit Leonardo Da vinci’s final residence

  • Walk in Leonardo da Vinci’s footsteps – not just an artist, a genius of the Renaissance.
  • The Clos Lucé, worthy of the favors and friendship of a king.
  • Military, maritime, hydraulic and aeronautic inventions: the technical and scientific research of a visionary.
  • Canvasses, panels, and maps…a magical garden where culture and amusement cohabit.
Built in the middle of the 15th century, the Clos Lucé, a beautiful country mansion in Amboise, was purchased by Charles VIII for his wife, Anne de Bretagne. Later, Francis I invited Leonardo da Vinci to stay and work there, and it is here that the great Renaissance artist lived his last three years. A tunnel links the Clos Lucé to the Château d’Amboise.
