Avignon and the surroundings

Named the City of the Popes or Altera Roma, Avignon retains the indelible mark of the Popes’ stay in the city, which was for a while the capital of the Medieval western world. Today, it is a prestigious cultural capital with its world-renowned Theatre Festival. 

Bordering the departments of the Gard and the Bouches du Rhône, the environs of Avignon abound in gems waiting to be discovered.

At the foot of its hill and the fortress of the Counts of Provence, Châteaurenard, "the market town", is a peaceful little Provencal town. The history of Châteaurenard can be discovered in the stones of its 13th and 15th century medieval castle, the former fortress of the Counts of Provence.
