Avignon, France

Avignon is a city of 91,283 inhabitants (290 000 in the metro area) located in southern France, more exactly in Provence.
The city is the capital of Vauclause departement.

It is know for its Papal Palace, its famous unfinished bridge (Pont Saint-Bénezet)
But as many of my thread you will not exactly see the monuments.

The walled old inner city is populated by 12,000 inhabitants.
The place is pedestrian friendy but outside it, it is better to not be a pedestrian.

Enjoy.

la ville est parfaite, belle et encore....un bijou de l'humanité, cependant, les photos sont depressantes. Avignon semble triste, froide et sans vie

mercy pour les photos quand même

nice collection of photos. I like the old area with narrow streets and old buildings.
I was expecting to see a picture of the papal palace. I know it's not as grand as the one in the Vatican.
thanks for sharing them.

Thanks for sharing. I thought France was all glamour from A to Z. These pixs prove it wrong. I like it.
