The beauty of Art Nouveau in this decorated balcony and wrought iron balustrade.
Here is the whole building.
The charm of the back streets.
It must be bumpy cycling on those cobblestones!
A gargoyle on the edge of a roof.
A spout in the form of a grotesque human or animal figure.
Their purpose is to throw rainwater clear of a building.
St. Pierre church
Looking up at the bell tower through the branches of a tree starting to blossom.
and admiring the bells before going for lunch in one of the numerous restaurants.
In this area, the Côtes du Rhône wine is particularly delicious.
Can you see the blue sky reflected in the glasses?
and this warm goat's cheese salad with pine nuts and fruity olive oil goes so perfectly with the wine.
Back through the streets to discover more architectural details
The sun illuminates the warm colour of this building.
An early evening walk is illuminated by shop windows showing us their wares.
What looks like a lamp in the left window, is in fact tiny suspended bottles
of olive oil glistening under hidden headlights.
which is French for olive tree.
Notice the Provençal language written in smaller letters at the bottom of the road sign.
So ends the second part of this visit to the town of Avignon.
I will leave you to wander these streets alone and enjoy the colours
of the Provence while I take a little pause.
Till next time with more blue skies!
