As a genuine witness of Renaissance splendours, the castle lies at the heart of Amboise and welcomes about 400 000 visitors every year. Leonardo da Vinci, Francis 1st of France and Catherine de Medici are legendary names that ceaselessly attract tourists from around the globe. The recent arrangement of an oriental garden has turned Amboise into a place of reconciliation and an honorific Muslim pilgrimage. The documentary leads us into the castle back stages and helps us discover the past and present adventures of its inhabitants. Gardeners, historians, architects, guides, artists and teachers tell us about the monument, from historic milestones and to daily dramas and stories.
