The Clos Lucé castle was the last seat of Leonardo da Vinci, converted later into a museum. Leonardo spent here the last three years of life, working for the King of France.

In the park surrounding the museum, you can see 16 large moving machines designed by Leonardo (helicopter, tank, fan, swing bridge, etc.).

Each of them can be touched, set in motion, and thus also enables the understanding of the principles of operation. In the landscape of the park 32 transparent canvas of ​​sizes around 3-4 meters have been incorporated, showing the details of Leonardo's paintings.

Clos Lucé castle is connected by an underground passage to the nearby castle in Amboise.
