Leonardo's final resting place

Isn’t this an amazing looking place?  I just loved it, but of course I am a huge fan of architecture, and especially stuff like this  It just blows my mind.

As the title of this post implies, this is inside the tomb of Leonardo da Vinci.  He has a burial crypt inside a small chapel which is situated on the grounds of the Chateau de Amboise, in the lovely town of Amboise, which is situated in the Loire Valley of France.  Go there now.  You can thank me later.

Honestly, there was nothing about the entire Loire Valley that disappointed me.  I experienced great weather, incredible sights, rich history and friendly people.  I saw amazing chateaux, a lovely river, and my camera was clicking like crazy.  I ate fabulous food and enjoyed some tasty beverages.  I’m ready to move!

Just think back to the time when Leondardo da Vinci was around, and the sort of impact he had on civilization at the time.  It’s clear this guy was an immense talent and a genius.  How do you honor someone like that?  I can’t imagine.  But I must say that the burial chamber is indescribably beautiful as you can see here.

As you can tell from the photo, I was aiming up for this shot because I wanted to capture all the intricacies in the ceiling.  The detail there is amazing.  Be sure and put the Loire Valley on your bucket list!
