Double-Helix staircase at Chateau Chambord
Caption: An outside view of the famous double-helix staircase at the Chateau de Chambord in the Loire Valley, a castle dating back to the 16th century. The two helices ascend the three floors without ever meeting, illuminated from above by a sort of light house at the highest point of the château. Some suggest Leonardo da Vinci may have designed the staircase.
