Leonardo da Vinci’s Waterwheel This waterwheel was constructed from the drawings and descriptions contained in Leonard da Vinci’s notebooks and stands in the grounds of the Château du Clos Lucé, 2 Rue du Clos Lucé, 37400 Amboise, France. The Château was built in 1471 and Leonardo Da Vinci was invited to live here in 1516 by King Francis I.

Portuguese Waterwheel 1 On my way to the Ria Park Hotel & Spa, Vale do Lobo, 8135-951 Almancil, Portugal, I saw this old waterwheel. I never discovered whether or not it was still in use. It wasn’t unlike those designed by Leonardo Da Vinci in the 15th-16th C and recorded in his notebooks. It was worth stopping for and photographing because I didn’t know when I might see another. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/5630c6f5e4b07e373ce97a23/1793533

Portuguese Waterwheel 2 Settled in at the Ria Park Hotel & Spa, Vale do Lobo, 8135-951 Almancil, Portugal, I saw this old waterwheel on my way back from the beach.
