Chateau de Chambord

In 2011 I went to France for a few weeks holiday and while there one of the things I did was visit the Chateau de Chambord in the Loire Valley. I’d long been wanting to go there as it is here that you can see little crowned salamanders carved into the walls and doors of the palace. The salamander appears on a lot of the costume jewellery I buy from France, and it was a thrill to see where he originated.
