François 1er chez Leonard de Vinci


I've lived in Amboise several years now and have visited the local post office (La Poste) many times.  But only recently when I was waiting outside for the doors to open for business did I notice this nice carved stone panel above the entrance.  It's been 500 years since Leonardo himself moved to Amboise.   Clos Lucé turned out to be his last home as he died there in 1519.

    1. Oui, mais c'est toujours difficile.

  2. In that case, the place deserves to mark his presence.
