  • In a busy narrow street with a few interesting shops. The queue to climb inside was too long to wait on a hot morning.

  • Nice building with historical places...
  • Here is a very beautiful tower in the middle of the shopping streets of the old town of Amboise, a stone's throw from the royal castle. If you can "visit" your foot to go to the toilet, the stairs to go upstairs are unfortunately condemned. It's a shame because the view from above must be interesting.
  • Your steps lead you to the entrance of the castle and then suddenly on your left you see a pedestrian shopping street and at the end of this street, a charming 16th century tower and its belfry. We are in the medieval atmosphere.
  • The walk in the streets of Amboise has pleasant surprises. Completed in five years, the site of this square tower ended in 1500. There was a solid construction on this site, the Porte d'Amasse, a vestige of the city walls. It is above this fortified gate that the two floors will be erected, plus the attic, plus the campanile housing a bell. A small round tower attached to this belfry houses the staircase giving access to the 4 upper levels. The bottom of the clock tower, the original part of the building and a vestige of the city gate, has a broken barrel vault from the 13th century. The walk in the streets of Amboise has pleasant surprises.
  • A tower that is barely noticeable as it blends well with the medieval quarter of Amboise
