Avignon, the cultural capital

avignon-the-cultural-capital

Avignon owes its origin to the Rocher des Doms, natural refuge above the Rhone. "River Town" by some, "City of the wind" as the others, it occupies a strategic position.

Avignon is already an important city in the twelfth century, especially through the Pont d'Avignon, which allows the crossing of the Rhone. With the arrival of the Popes in the fourteenth century the city became a second Rome. Haven, Avignon is thriving, attracting foreign, religious, artists, merchants, bankers and even political exiles such as Petrarch, well known for his love for Laura.

The arts are experiencing a considerable development. Avignon papal land remains until the Revolution. Then, the city will grow in full of its ramparts.

The Avignon region is distinguished by a happy variety of natural beauty, giving it a unique and very attractive appearance. Before long, tourists can visit the most diverse sites: the Pont du Gard, Nîmes, Arles, Camargue, Luberon and Ventoux, Baux de Provence, Saint Rémy and the Alpilles are at the gates of the city.
