City of Popes
As a fortified medieval town with cobblestoned streets, Avignon was the residence of 7 Popes and 2 Antipopes. The town has inherited an exceptional heritage including the Palace of the Popes and the Saint Bénézet bridge. The 14th century palace is the world’s biggest Gothic palace. Volume-wise, it represents the equivalent of 4 Gothic cathedrals! Every year, in July and August, the town also becomes the capital of theatre, during the famous festival of Avignon.
Every years in July, the city becomes a theatre capital, as this is when the famour Avignon festival occurs.
I also has to be done once in your life. Unforgettable and guaranteed experience...
