Take a tour of Chambord Castle in Chambord, France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.

A first look at the Chambord Castle roofline might mistake it for a small city.

This dream-like chateau was built by King Francois I as a hunting lodge.

However, this hunting lodge is a rival to any structure in France for beauty and splendor.

The elaborate architecture brings together the best of French and Italian Renaissance design.

Chambord Castle is also rich in history; generations of French monarchy and nobility lived in its walls.

The castle’s centerpiece is a spectacular double-helix spiral staircase that rises to the top floor.

This unique staircase is said to have been designed by Leonardo da Vinci.

The chateau also has a 13,000 acre game reserve, making the entire experience beautifully serene.
