While the papacy was located in Avignon there was lots of construction. As in Paris and other smaller towns in France it's amazing how many churches there can be.
Here's what the town looks like from the garden above the pope's palace.
And here's what the famous bridge looks like. Since the 17th century only half of the bridge remains.
We had a very nice lunch in the large plaza near the pope's palace. I had an appetizer of sauteed eggplant with tomato sauce while Bill's appetizer was salade Nicoise. He had steak and I had cod served with aioli (a garlicy mayonnaisse) and steamed vegetables. I had marriage de mousse for dessert - a combination of chocolate and caramel mousse. Bill's dessert was similar, but featured pineapple.
In French restaurants you always know where the meat came from. I'm not exactly sure what to do with this information.
