As you may have read from my previous post, I was recently touring the beauties of France. Avignon is another of the many places we visited during the tour. Its main and most well known attraction is a bridge called Pont Saint-Bénézet, known more commonly as Pont d’Avignon. This bridge was the inspiration for the song ‘Sur Le Pont d’Avignon’ and was built between 1177 and 1185. Another major landmark of Avignon includes Palais de Papes which translates to ‘Pope’s Palace’. The Gothic building was opened in 1364 and is simply beautiful inside, taking a floor space of 15 000 meters squared. Enjoy the photos!
I look forward to posting the third portfolio of the France Tour.
