Domain note

Château de Chambord

In 1519, a palace sprang up in the heart of the Sologne marshlands. François I, a young king, ordered its construction. It was a monumental work of architecture that the king liked to show off to sovereigns and ambassadors as a symbol of his power, inscribed in stone.

The château's layout and decorations were designed around a central axis: the famous double-revolution staircase, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, an ascending spiral that leads from the terraces to the abundance of sculpted fireplaces and capitals. It was not until the reign of Louis XIV that the building was completed. It was also during this period that the château's grounds were landscaped in the 17th century. The château and park have been state property since 1930.

Today, Chambord welcomes two million visitors a year.
