Discover the famous Château du Clos Lucé, a historic monument in the Châteaux de la Loire region and once the home of Leonardo da Vinci!
Dating back to the end of the 15th century, the château served as the royal residence of the kings of France for many years. A few years later, in the early 16th century, Leonardo da Vinci was invited to stay there by King Francis I. He would spend the last years of his life there. Le Clos Lucé thus became not only his place of residence, but also a place of creation as the 'King's First Painter, Engineer, and Architect'.
