Tourism Amboise

Amboise is situated on the banks of the Loire, in the district of  Tours and in the region of Centre. The Val d'Amboise  has  the largest castles in the Val de Loire and the most finest gardens.

The history of the town of Amboise is back in the fourth century BC, during which an important Celtic oppidum was built on the site of "Chatelliers". Archaeological excavations of the site have uncovered many artifacts dating from the prehistoric times.

During the medieval period, many lords fight over the town of Amboise because of the strategic position occupied by the town at that time especially for the control of river. The Lordship of Amboise was then attached to the royal domain in the fifteenth century by King Charles VII of France who built a castle.

During the religious wars of the sixteenth century, the conspiracy of Amboise led to the execution of many Protestants. During the eighteenth century, the city experienced economic prosperity and became the residence of the Duc de Choiseul. In fact he bought the Chateau de Chanteloup and built a pagoda.
