The Big Chill

Leonardo's house was a dependency of the castle of Amboise and it is there that his tomb is located.  This special chapel was built to house the final resting place of a great man of the Renaissance.
At the end of the Hundred Years War the castle of Amboise, like Chinon, was a favorite of the French kings.  It was indeed an honor that they chose this site for the tomb of their favorite guest from Italy.
