"The city of the Pope... just for a while!" Avignon by lichinga

Avignon Travel Guide: 514 reviews and 1,497 photos

One of the gems of Provence

Yes, the Popes moved to Avignon for some time. That was centuries ago, while confusion in the Roman Catholic church was much greater than nowadays. I think I can remember there has been a period with three self-proclaimed Popes at the same time!
Now, Avignon has nothing to do with the top of the hierarchy, but the signs are still there.

    It's good that there is lots of life in the streets in Avignon. I haven't been back to Avignon for a long time, but hope to go again this year.
