Castle of Clos Lucé

Castle of Clos Lucé
Amboise, France

in the Middle Age, Estienne Leloup, bailiff to Louis XI, installed a small cannon known as a "Culverine" on the chemin de ronde, to inspire respect from the people of Amboise. But this violent attitude displeased the King, and Leloup fell into disgrace. In the Renaissance, the chemin de ronde was turned into a gallery, a loggia in the italian style.
