This is the largest château in Loire Valley. There are more than 300 chateaux in Loire Valley. The pride and joy of the chateau de Chambord is the double helix staircase made up of 274 steps. They both ascend to the third floor and do not connect. This staircase was designed by Leonardo da Vinci. It made sure that the king never met with the servants on the stairs.
