My photos: France -- Villeneuve-les-Avignon

This charming small village grew in importance in the late 1200s when Avignon became the home of the Pope.  The hilltop Fort, Fort Saint-André, housed a Benedictine Monastery with extensive gardens.  The village was home to many of the Bishops who moved here along with Pope Clement V in 1305.
