History of Avignon
The Popes made Avignon the capital of the Medieval western world in the 15th century. A papal territory up until the French Revolution, the city actually benefited little from the first Industrial Revolution. The area of the city is 25.01 mi², with a population of 91,283 (2007). there are not many apartments in Avignon. Avignon is great for biking, because of the many mountains and scenery.
