Interior ramp of the Tour des Minimes 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 with a rib-vaulted ceiling. The chateau is listed as a historic monument. Picture by Manuel Cohen
