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.

    Cat, thanks for the name! Unfortunately image blogs like the one where I found this picture don't come with captions or credits.

    I got to go last Spring and all I can say is WOW! The entire Abbey is simply stunning! It's on the banks of the Danube up on a hill and you can see the entire town from the back balcony, the hills, and the river. Stunning place and this staircase was the most incredible I saw on our trip!
