Porch terrace in the royal residence overlooking the River Loire 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. Charles VIII was responsible for much of the building work before his death in 1498, turning the building from a medieval fortress to a Gothic palace. Renaissance and Italianate additions were installed under Francois I and Henri II. The chateau is listed as a historic monument. Picture by Manuel Cohen
