Palace of the popes

The route is quite spacious with a good audio guide. It was very good even though it´s almost empty. But you are not allowed to take pictures inside or videotapee. At the exit there is a kind of small winery where you can buy wines with Chateauneuf-du-Pape as the Popes were fond of these.

In one day you can visit all these attractions and enjoy a French history lesson.

Estando en la hermosa ciudad de AVIÑON el paseo obligado es visitar y disfrutar el famosos Palacio Papal (Palais des Papes) en donde se desenvolvió un interesante episodio de la historia de la Iglesia Católica.
Este inmenso edificio además de su valor histórico, representa un impecable muestra de la arquitectura gótica medieval europea, y fue designado Patrimonio de la Humanidad por UNESCO en el año 1995.
Existen en Europa varios Palacios Papales, y el de Aviñón se utilizó como sede papal en el año 1309 DC, cuando el Papa Clemente trasladó la sede a Francia, huyendo del ambiente violento de Roma.
El antiguo palacio se encuentra a un lado del río Ródano, sobre una pequeña colina en las antiguas murallas de la ciudad. Es sumamente grande pues cubre una superficie de más de 15, 000 metros cuadrados lo que hace cansada la visita; además de subir y bajar las múltiples escaleras y recorrer los interminables pasillos.
Solo una parte del Palacio está abierta al turista y en algunos de sus muros se pueden apreciar frescos que datan del siglo 14. Al observar algunos de sus techos podemos ver que son originales y se encuentran en buen estado.
Frente al Palacio se encuentra la inmensa Plaza del Palacio y además, algunas de sus salones han sido convertidas en centro de Convenciones.
También en esta zona de Aviñón se encuentra el famoso puente del Ródano, de una gran belleza arquitectónica, que cruza el río del mismo nombre.
En un mismo día se pueden visitar todos estos atractivos y disfrutar de una lección sobre la historia francesa.

About the palais des papes, the diari...

About the Palais des Papes, the diarist French Froissart described him as "the most beautiful and most fortified mansion of the world", and who can blame him?! This beautiful Gothic palace, which seems to come from a natural rocky outcrop, stands on the square where you stand even the archbishop's palace Petite Palais, the church of Notre Dame des Doms and the Hotel des Monnaies. The construction of this palace was started in the 30 years of the fourteenth century at the behest of Pope Benedict XII, instead of the old episcopal palace, and was later extended by various popes who succeeded to the papacy during the period of exile in Avignon, in which the seat Pope was moved from Rome to Avignon. Open every day, the Palace of the Popes is largely open: From the audience, where they gathered the hearers of the Court of the Sacred Apostolic Palace, go up until you reach the terrace of the dignitaries where you can enjoy a splendid view of Avignon, on the Rhone and the hills of Villeneuve lez Avignon. If the decoration of these environments has been mostly lost, there are some whose walls the frescoes of the fourteenth century, it is so for the Chamber of the Pope, entirely decorated with plant shoots, and for the House of the Deer whose name derives from the representation a scene of deer hunting.

A proposito del Palazzo dei Papi, il diarista francese Froissart lo definì "la dimora più bella e più fortificata del mondo", e come dargli torto?! Questo splendido palazzo gotico, che sembra sorgere da un naturale affioramento roccioso, si impone sulla piazza in cui si ergono anche il palazzo arcivescovile Petite Palais, la chiesa di Notre Dame des Doms e l'Hotel des Monnaies.

La costruzione di questo palazzo fu iniziata negli anni 30 del Trecento per volere di Benedetto XII, al posto del vecchio palazzo episcopale, e fu in seguito ampliata dai vari papi che si succedettero al soglio pontificio durante il periodo della cattività avignonese, in cui la sede papale fu spostata da Roma a Avignone.

Aperto tutti i giorni, il Palazzo dei Papi è per buona parte visitabile: Dal Grande Uditorio, dove si riunivano gli uditori del Tribunale del Sacro Palazzo Apostolico, si sale sino a raggiungere la Terrazza dei dignitari da cui si gode una splendida vista su Avignone, sul Rodano e sulle colline di Villeneuve lez Avignon.

Se la decorazione di questi ambienti è andata perlopiù persa, ve ne sono alcuni le cui pareti conservano gli affreschi del Trecento, è così per la Camera del Papa, interamente decorata da tralci vegetali, e per la Camera del Cervo il cui nome deriva dalla raffigurazione di una scena di caccia al cervo.

When you enter the palais des papes, ...

When you enter the Palais des Papes, the first impression you have is this large fully enclosed, very formal courtyard and immediately imposed respect. Popes moved to Avion and had for several centuries the seat of the Catholic church in the city. The King of France was not very happy to have this state in the state and then the Popes palace instead of a fortress built more well take refuge in case of attack. You can see up on your right the chapel and the great portal, which can be reached by a staircase. But first the visit takes you in front in the lower part of the palace where silver, gold is hidden, and even the Popes Tenan a strong fourth refuge. The palace entrance costs 13 euros and allows you to visit the neighboring St Bnezet bridge, which reserve access to the palace from the residence of Villeneuve, the other side of Rdano. Both are UNESCO world heritage.

Cuando entras en el palacio de los Papas, la primera impresión que tienes es la de este gran patio completamente cerrado, muy formal y que impone enseguida el respeto.

Los Papas se movieron a Aviñon y tuvieron durante varios siglos la sede de la iglesia católica en la ciudad. El rey de Francia no estaba muy feliz de tener este “estado en el estado” y entonces los Papas en vez de palacio se construyeron más bien una fortaleza donde refugiarse en caso de ataque.

Puedes ver arriba a tu derecha la capilla y el gran portal, al cual puedes llegar por una escalera de honor. Pero primero la visita te lleva en frente, en la parte baja del palacio donde se escondía la plata, el oro, y hasta los Papas tenían un cuarto fuerte donde refugiarse.

La entrada del palacio cuesta 13 euros y te permite ir a visitar el vecino puente St Bénezet, que servía de acceso al palacio desde la residencia de Villeneuve, del otro lado del Ródano. Ambos son patrimonio mundial de la UNESCO.

The city of Avignon in Provence is full of historical monuments. Indeed besides, the Avignon Bridge contines of our childhood, you can visit the Palais des Papes. The latter is the largest Gothic palace in the world, the city being at that time the capital of Christendom. There are also the walls that surround the city, but their access is limited, given that the walls also allow you access to Benezet Bridge (Pont d'Avignon said) and whose visit is on average a total of 30 minutes.

La ville d'Avignon dans le Vaucluse regorge de monuments historiques. En effet sans compter, sur le pont d'Avignon des comptines de nos enfance, vous pourrez visiter le Palais des Papes. Ce dernier est le plus grand palais gothique au monde, la ville étant à l'époque la capitale de la chrétienté. Il y a aussi les remparts qui entourent la ville, cependant leur accès est payant, sachant que les remparts vous permettent également l'accès au Pont Bénezet (dit Pont d'Avignon) et dont la visite est en moyenne d'une durée totale de 30 minutes.

Also known as the City of the Popes, Avignon city can boast of an eventful history. In XIV, she greeted in effect for nearly 100 years the various popes, taking the symbolic role that previously occupied by Rome. The Popes, wanting to feel good but also to be protected from possible attacks were built in the course of their various kingdoms this magnificent medieval fortress. What impresses even today, it is the excellent state of preservation of the monument, including the visit fun and interesting, is therefore required in a discovery of the city.

Egalement connue sous le nom de la Cité des Papes, la ville d'Avignon peut se vanter d'une histoire riche en rebondissements. Au XIV ème, elle accueillit en effet pendant près de 100 ans les différents papes, prenant de fait la place symbolique jusqu'alors occupée par Rome. Les Papes, désireux de se sentir bien mais également d'être protégés des éventuelles attaques, ont fait édifié au courant de leurs différents règnes cette magnifique forteresse médiévale. Ce qui impressionne encore aujourd'hui, c'est l'excellent état de conservation du monument, dont la visite, ludique et intéressante, s'impose donc lors d'une découverte de la ville.

Pontifical residence

One of the most marked by papal history cities, Avignon offers the largest Gothic accomplishing ever built at that time. The Rocher des Doms, the palace was built between 1335 and 1352 under the pontificates of Benedict XII and Clement VI. From the outside we already appreciate the immensity of facades and architectural work done but the tour of the interior transports us back in time. Although not much left, a room we go to the other, each of which tells the story of the palace.

Résidence pontificale

Une des villes les plus marquée par l'histoire pontificale, Avignon offre la réalistion gothique la plus importante jamais construite à cette époque.
Sur le rocher des Doms, le palais fut édifié entre 1335 et 1352 sous les pontificats de Benoit XII et Clément VI.
De l'extérieur déja on apprécie l'immensité des façades et le travail architectural réalisé mais la visite de l'intérieur nous transporte dans le temps.
Même s'il ne reste plus grand chose , on passe d'une salle à l'autre, chacune d'elle raconte la vie du palais.

Noon in avignon

Heaven there are many, like crosses, palaces and interesting places. But when you find a magical place you need to save. At this time he joined it all: a huge sun, clear blue skies, a special place as the Papal Palace in Avignon, in the upper part and a great company. Luckily I had the camera handy.

Mediodía en avignon

Cielos hay muchos, al igual que cruces, palacios y lugares interesantes. Pero cuando encuentras un lugar mágico es necesario guardarlo. En este momento se juntó todo: un sol enorme, un cielo limpio y azul, un lugar especial como el Palacio Papal de Avignon, en la parte alta, y una compañía genial. Menos mal que tenía la cámara a mano.
