The Glories of the West: Chapel of St. Hubert, Château d'Amboise, France
The Chapel of Saint Hubert, in the Château d'Amboise, the grand 15th-century residence of King Charles VIII (Amboise is a town in central France’s Loire Valley).
The Chapel is best known as the burial place of Leonardo da Vinci; but despite my respect for that amazing Renaissance man, I am more interested in its patronage, since St. Hubert (Hubertus of Liège) is a great favorite of mine and somewhat of a personal patron, given his connection with both hunting and conservation – two of my major interests, for many years!
The traditional commemoration of St. Hubert is November 3rd, but I'm likely to lose or forget about this link, by then...
