Avignon

Avignon is also known as the City of Popes, a reference to the Avignon Papacy, the period from 1309 to 1378 when successive popes and their courts resided in the city, rather than Rome. Nowadays, Avignon is the largest city and the administrative centre of the French department of Vaucluse. It is one of the few French cities to have retained its ramparts and its historical centre, consisting of the Papal Palace, the Episcopal Ensemble, the Doms Rock and the Avignon Bridge — the very same one mentioned in the popular song “On the Bridge of Avignon”. Its famous festival is the largest performing arts event in the world in terms of the number of works and spectators it features. Founded in September 1947 by Jean Vilar, it now attracts some 600,000 visitors and performers each year.

A word for the wise: Pablo Picasso’s painting, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907), has no direct connection with this city. It actually portrays the Rue d’Avignon in...Barcelona!

 

The Line depicted the skyline of Avignon as seen from Barthelasse Island.
