Avignon became home for Catholic popes for a long period  following conflicts and disputes about  the papacy in Rome in the 13th century. The palace (above) was built between 1335 and 1364 on a natural rocky outcrop at the northern edge of Avignon overlooking the river Rhone.  Here are some photos of the palace and the area around it.
