HIDDEN TREASURE

 

What could be more intriguing than going behind the scenes in a prestigious royal residence and having a stroll in the illuminated gardens at night-fall.

The château has made these exceptional visits available for visitors:

HISTORY FROM BEHIND THE SCENES
GUIDED VISIT OF THE UNDERGROUND PASSAGEWAYS AND TOWERS OF THE ROYAL CHATEAU

 

Individual visitors (in a small group formed on site) have exceptional access to the underground passageways and towers of the medieval fortress that are located underneath the Renaissance Royal House. When at the foot of the ramparts, you will enter the Garçonnet Tower that was built in the 15th century by order of Louis XI. You will then continue on to the Salle des Lys, which was once the refectory for the guards. From there, you will make your way along the rampart-walk which will take you as far as the ditches of the old keep, past the rooms containing lapidary fragments. You can then enter the maze of underground passages, taking you right to the Minimes cavalry tower.

A one-hour guided visit in French for individual visitors in good physical condition, from the age of 7. Reservations by internet are available up to 36 hours in advance at : www.chateau-amboise.getaticket.com .
