The bridge of Avignon

The Papal Palace

Inside the Popes Palace the Pope had his study and bedroom painted with frescoes around the 14th century.

The shopping list for the coronation of the Pope Clement V1 on May 19th 1342 included
60 pigs
101 lambs
118 cows
1023 sheep
1195 geese
7428 chickens
39400 eggs
50000 pies
quite staggering sometimes they would feed 2000 people.

Plenty of restaurants in plazas abound.
