In the centre of Avignon, the 14th-century Palais des Papes was built to house Pope Clement V, who relocated here to escape the chaos of Rome. This mighty, 700-year-old structure is one of the most important Gothic buildings in Europe, and together with the ramparts and the Petit Palais museum, is a striking complex.
