Le Pontet , a former district of Avignon
Le Pontet = « the small bridge ». At the beginning of the XVIth century, a small wooden bridge was built to facilitate the way from Avignon centre.
The municipality of Le Pontet, born in 1925, used to be a former district of Avignon. It became independent when the citizen started to ask for more economic self-sufficiency.
Nowadays, Le Pontet benefits from its proximity with Avignon and the countryside around.
Avignon lies on the banks of the river Rhône. From 1309 to 1377, the catholic Popes chose Avignon to settle their residence and it remained under the pontifical reign until 1791, when it was attached to France.
Le Palais des Papes, The Popes Palace, located in the city centre is surrounded by medieval stone ramparts and bears witness to this story.
It is one of the rare French cities to have preserved its ramparts and his historical centre, “Le Palais des Papes », “Le Rocher des Doms » and “Le Pont d’Avignon ». It has been classified as world heritage by Unesco.
Its famous theatre festival, the largest in the world and a real artistic and cultural showcase of the city, has gone far beyond French borders.
The city was European Capital of Culture in 2000.
