Chambord by JuanmaMateos -.Chateau de Chambord, France. A masterpiece of the French Renaissance, Chateau de Chambord  was started in 1519 by King François I ………. so he could hunt in the nearby forests. Has 440 rooms, 365 fireplaces, and 84 staircases.  It took 28 years to build and the King stayed there a TOTAL of about seven weeks. Fell into disrepair many times, only to be revived many times. Looks like a castle,  but has zero defensive capabilities, so it’s not.
