Chateau du Clos Luce Tours

Chateau du Clos Luce
Chateau de Clos Luce may not be the country’s grandest castle, but it’s still gained favor among art and history loving travelers thanks to its notoriety as the official final residence of famed artist Leonardo da Vinci. While the castle was once home to King Francis I, today it stands as a museum to the great painter’s works. Travelers can wander the halls and check out more than 40 models and machines designed by da Vinci, as well as wander the underground tunnel that connects Chateau du Clos Luce to the royal Chateau d’Ambroise.
