Clos Lucé, Amboise, France

Next up on our short tour of places in the Loire Valley was Clos Lucé in Amboise. In 1516, King Francis I of France invited Leonardo da Vinci to Amboise to live and work and provided him with the Clos Lucé, then called Château de Cloux. He died there in 1519.

Francis and I have differing definitions of "house."
