AVIGNON

Avignon, rich in culture and with impressive places of historical interest, is one of the most interesting cities in Province, in the south of France. It is historically important and was a city that was appreciated by Roman popes, who chose it as their place of residence in the year 1300 and ordered the construction of the city’s main attraction, the Papal Palace. This impressive building is known as one of the largest gothic palaces in the world.
The walled streets of the city’s historical center also have other important places of interest: a Roman cathedral, a medieval fort, a famous bridge and many museums to explore. The city center, recognized as a World Heritage Site, is also a fascinating part of a city worth experiencing.
