Val de Loire
Le Centre Pompidou
The Chateau de Chambord is the largest castle in Les Pays de la Loire. François I was instructed to build the castle in 1519. The work on it was disrupted by the Italian War in 1521. François I died in 1547 with the walls of the castle hardly built and the cost of the work being 444,070 livres, or $569,000. The castle was given, passed down, sold, shared, and abandoned throughout the years. It was used as a hunting lodge and a place to get away for a little while. The castle was not finished until 1685 by Louis XIV. The state bought the building for about $14,095,000 (11 million francs) in 1932.
Before WWII, the artworks from the Louvre and Compiègne were stored in the Chateau de Chambord. The artworks included the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo.
Louis XIV's Bedroom
Out of 440 rooms, this bedroom is one of the few furnished rooms in the entire castle.
Double Helix Staircase
The double helix staircase is rumored to be designed and constructed by Leonardo Da Vinci. Two people can go up and/or down at the same time and never cross each other.
Parc Floral de la Source
The Parc Floral de la Source is located in Orlèans, France. The garden is 86.5 acres. The monks of the Abbey Saint-Mesmin de Micy acquired the land in 510.
