About Château de Chambord 500 Years

Chambord is an exceptional work of art. Placed on the first list of historical monuments in France in 1840 as well as the Louvre or Versailles, it is also a World Heritage Site by Unesco since 1981. Chambord is surrounded by a vast forest park, protected by a wall of 32 kilometers long, making it the largest enclosed park in Europe with 5,440 hectares. Chambord is a radically unique work, one of the jewels of the heritage of humanity. His vocation is symbolic, aesthetic and spiritual. Affirmation of the royal power but also evocation of an ideal city, the monument remains an enigma that has not finished revealing all its secrets. Chambord is a monument of beauty and intelligence, conceived by Francis I and Leonardo da Vinci, which is probably to architecture what the Mona Lisa is to painting. It is the very expression of the Renaissance and its symbol throughout the world. To visit Chambord is to access a world apart, full of mystery, which opens the doors of genius. Owned by the State since 1930, the National Estate of Chambord became in 2005 a public establishment of an industrial and commercial character placed under the high patronage of the President of the Republic and under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of the Agriculture and the Ministry of Ecology.
