Avignon is situated in the south of France in the very heart of the Vaucluse region. There are two places of interest which attract people from all over the world. They are: Le Palais des Papes (Popes' Palace) and Pont St Benezet.
The Palais des Papes amazes by its height and impression of its architecture that is more remarkable from outside; the famous bridge of Pont St Benezet built in the 12th century was reconstructed several times and today only 22 of its arches are original.
The town acquired its name from the Celts who called it 'the town of violent winds'. It faced floods, fires, pillaging, plague and Le Mistral (a violent, cold and northwesterly wind) but fortunately the greater part of the town remained untouched.
We may say that the town is decorated by churches, chapels and convents as the number of them is great. The cause of it is that the town used to be a residence of seven popes who were mainly interested in plotting and partying but not religion.
Due to its favorable geographical position the town and surroundings are very beautiful and colorful. Its images on River Rhone resemble magnificent paintings of Van Gogh.
The town is full of romance with its quite streets, secret gardens, secluded courtyards original and cozy at one and the same time cafes and restaurants.
Though one cannot say that the town is always quiet. It gained its popularity in the 13th century as a 'ringing town' thanks to a great number of bells there. And though its population is not so great it is usually doubled due to tourists visiting it.
Climate of Avignon is mild, good for out-of-door activities in summer. Every year the town holds a Festival which takes place in the courtyard of the Palais des Papes or any church or chapel and it attracts lots of people.
Besides the official part of the festival there are also some other shows consisting of not less than 400 acts and lasting all through the day and night. The town changes in these days, as everything is somehow connected with the Festival: posters are everywhere, all the cafes and restaurants are full of musicians and actors ready to play non-stop.
