Remparts of Avignon

Avignon France Tourist Information and Vacation Guide

The medieval city of Avignon is encircled by a wall that is referred to as the Ramparts (remparts).  The original ramparts were built by the pope when the Vatican was moved to Avignon France from Rome in the 1360s.  They have since been rebuilt.
