    Chateau-de-la-rochefoucauld stairway

      Chateau-de-la-Rochefoucauld stairway, France. Spectacular double helix open staircase is the centerpiece of the château. The two helixes ascend three floors without ever meeting, illuminated from above by a sort of light house at the highest point of the château. There are suggestions that Leonardo da Vinci may have designed the staircase but this has not been confirmed.

      Chateau de la Rochefoucauld Stairway - Early in the 11th century, the son of Fucaldus built a square keep, still identifiable at the heart of the present site. Two entrance towers were built from 1350, with three angle towers following, along with a heightening of the keep, in 1453. Galleries and a grand staircase, the latter attributed to designs by Leonardo da Vinci, were added in 1520. Much of the medieval building was demolished in 1615 when the courtyard was opened out
