Avignon is a French commune in southeastern France in the départment of the Vaucluse bordered by the left bank of the Rhône river. The ancient town centre is surrounded by its medieval ramparts.
Often referred to as the "City of Popes" because of the presence of popes from 1309 to 1423 during the Catholic schism, it is currently the largest city and capital of the département of Vaucluse. This is one of the few French cities to have preserved its ramparts, its historic centre, the palace of the popes, Rocher des Doms, and the bridge of Avignon. It was classified a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

You've caught a nice light on the city. The sun lightens just as necessary the Palace of Popes. Good job !

Great light over the Palais des Papes and nice contrast between the grey clouds and the soft tones of the monument, well done !
