|Walking towards the Palais des Papes or papal palace in Avignon|
|The Avignon Bridge inspired by Saint Benezet|
He was ridiculed at first, but was soon believed after Benezet miraculously lifted a giant boulder. The bridge was built from 1177 to 1185 and when Benezet died, his body was interred in the chapel above the bridge. It has since been moved to another chapel.
|The papal palace was also a fortified fortress|
The bridge is also famous for the song, Sur le Pont d'Avignon... but I barely remember the lyrics from when I sang it in elementary school!
|The Langlois Bridge that van Gogh painted|
|The amphitheatre is still being used for events like bullfights|
|The hospital in which van Gogh stayed in and painted|
|At the asylum in St Remy is van Gogh's bedroom|
|This was the view from his studio across from the bedroom|
|The fragrant lavender bushes grown behind the asylum|
|A bronze statue of van Gogh with sunflowers|
