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 most splendid château of them all.

It is the year 1519: the king of France, François I is 25 years old. Driven by his taste for royal excess, François decides to combine his two passions: hunting and architecture, in the most magnificent setting possible. In the design of the Château de Chambord you can clearly see the shadow of the official architect, Leonardo da Vinci, who died a few months before the start of construction.

Ultimately, François was to frequent the woods on hunting trips more than he was to truly inhabit the château. The château was in fact mainly built under Charles IX and was finally completed under Louis XIV. A state property since 1932, the Château de Chambord is now a Unesco World Heritage Monument and is the largest and most splendid of all the châteaux in the Loire Valley, and probably the most visited.

The park of the Château de Chambord, covering 5440 hectares, is the largest forested park in Europe.
You can visit the Château in several different ways including with a tour guide or audio guide, in the company of a character from the past, with a puzzle book for children, and there are also in-depth visits available for small groups which are run on a more flexible timetable. The Museum of Hunting and Nature, is to be found here, as well as many art exhibitions which are held amongst the fabulous royal collections. In summer, don't miss the traditional sound and light show at the Château de Chambord.
