Jardin de Léonard is at Château du Clos Lucé. Leonardo da Vinci was invited to Amboise by King Francis I, who gave him Clos Lucé. He spent the last 3 years of his life here. An underground passage connects Clos Lucé to the royal chateau. Jardin de Léonard opened in 2008 with the aim of breathing life into Leonardo's landscapes and botanical studies. One feature is a double-deck bridge invented by Leonardo.

From civil and military engineer to botanist, in his work as an architect and as a musician, the all-encompassing nature of Leonardo da Vinci’s intuition is brought to life before your eyes
