Entrance to the Chapelle Saint-Hubert, built 1491-96 in Flamboyant Gothic style, 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 chapel was carved under Charles VIII in Italianate style by Flemish craftsmen in stone and tufa. The lintel represents St Hubert hunting and the 19th century tympanum, Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany kneeling before the Virgin. The chapel also served as an oratory for Anne of Brittany and presumed final resting place of Leonardo da Vinci, who died at Amboise in 1519. The chateau is listed as a historic monument.
