Sulptural detail on the rib-vaults of the ceiling of the interior ramp of the Tour des Minimes, with figures holding a coat of arms with 3 fleur de lys, at the Chateau d'Amboise, a medieval castle of the Loire Valley which became a royal residence in the 15th century and was largely reworked in the 15th and 16th centuries, at Amboise, Indre-et-Loire, Centre, France. The tower has a wide, shallow ramp large enough to allow horses and carriages access to the terrace of the royal residence, situated above the river, and was built in Renaissance style. The chateau is listed as a historic monument. Picture by Manuel Cohen
