One of the fascinating structures of the castle is the double helix staircase. Built right in the middle of the castle, the DNA like structure enclosed in a lantern joins various levels of the castle. Leonardo da Vinci inspired the design.
So what’s the catch? You won’t be seeing or meeting the ones on the other side of the helix.
The chateau encompasses rooms to flaunt the fantastic architecture and deep artistic taste. A collection of 4500 decorative pieces awaits in the castle to be seen once but cherished forever. Another exciting feature of the Chambord castle is that you will find salamander engraved in the ceilings and the wall. It was believed that salamander has the power to resist flames. Don’t forget to give it a good look.
After 16 years of extensive research and study, the grand garden of Chambord was renovated with plants that restored the original look of the garden created in the time of Louis XIV. Covering 18,874 square meters of land, these gardens are the definition of magnificence and grandeur.

Francis I invited Leonardo da Vinci and declared him as “first painter, architect, and engineer of the king.” History may not officially approve the influence of Leonardo’s touch, but the fantastic central staircase, the ventilation, and the latrine systems speak for its designer.
