At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The birthplace of the Renaissance.

With its strategic location towering over the River Loire, Amboise Royal Chateau was once a favourite with the kings and queens of France.

In 1492, Charles VIII decided to rebuild the original eleventh-century structure extensively, at first in the late Gothic Flamboyant style and later with some of the earliest Renaissance decorative motifs seen in French architecture. Building work continued under Louis XII, Francis I and Henry II.

In 1515, Leonardo da Vinci came to Amboise Royal Chateau and lived and worked in the nearby Clos Lucé, which is connected to the castle by an underground passageway. He’s buried in the adjoining Chapel of Saint-Hubert.

Although Amboise Royal Chateau later fell into decline, it has recently been restored.
