The famous Avignon bridge is actually called
Saint Benezet Bridge.
It was first constructed in the 17th century, originally had 22 arches
and measured 900 metres long.
The river it partially crosses is the Rhône.
One of the squares.
Almost everywhere you go, you can see a church steeple
or religious statues.
There are many cobbled streets and you need comfortable
walking shoes to get around!
The cobblestones seem to be washed every morning
and this close-up shows how these well-worn stones tell a story
of many many years right back to the Middle Ages.
There is plenty of beautiful stonework and this door really caught my eye.
There are windows with stone carvings and decorated window panes.
and others with gorgeous reflections and decorated with flowers.
How about this lovely attic window
with the curtain mysteriously almost closed in the afternoon?
There are many many restaurants
and my favourites are the simplest ones
which serve a simple 'plat du jour' (daily special).
This place only had room for one table for two outside.
Don't you love it?
Shall we meet and have lunch there?
Three little olive trees all in a row
and some Savon de Marseille in the window,
the famous soap.
I have so many photographs after visiting this lovely town three times,
but I'll stop for today with this early evening shot of a rosy sky.
