    Description:

    Designed by Antonio Rizzo between 1483 and 1485, the sculptural work on the staircase was finally completed in 1491. The name comes from the two colossal stone statues of Mars and Neptune by Jacopo Sansovino, which were erected on the upper parapet in 1567.

    Description:

    Le Vau proposed in 1668 a plan which preserved the original château at the centre, surrounding it by an ‘enveloppe’, which entirely screened it from the garden side but left it visible from the courtyard. The new building was in white ashlar. The palace interiors were fitted up in the 1670s while building works continued: the apartments of the King and Queen were decorated in marbles of various colours, and the ceiling paintings were entrusted to Charles Le Brun and his team.

    Description:

    Built by an unknown architect for Gilles Berthelot (died 1529), a financier from Tours in the service of Francis I. The stone château, surrounded on three sides by the River Indre, has an L-shaped plan under steep slate roofs. In 1528 the château was confiscated by the King. This effectively put an end to the building programme, leaving unfinished two of the four wings. In 1845 the medieval keep was rebuilt as a circular tower in Renaissance style, terminating the east wing, and a corbelled c…

    Description:

    Second Empire style with colored marble and ornate candelabra

    The château was expanded by Phillipe de France, duc d'Orléans in the 17th century, and finally enlarged by Marie Antoinette in the 1780s. Napoleon I and Napoleon III also used the palace, which was a U-shaped scheme of three sections, open to the east. Destroyed by fire (with the exception of a few outbuildings and its majestic garden) in 1870, during the Franco-Prussian War. The burned-out shell stood until 1891, when it was …
