The 19th Century in Avignon

Visites guidées Avignon

Until the French Revolution, Avignon and the Comtat Venaissin are papal territories. In 1791, they are reunited with the kingdom of France and the city becomes the capital of the department of Vaucluse in 1793. After the fall of the First Empire in 1815, Avignon is experiencing a phase of urban growth which requires it to develop the spaces peripheral to its medieval ramparts. The arrival of the railway in 1849, which unites the city to Marseille, brought Avignon into modernity

Follow your guide through the Haussmannian quarter, between Place de l'Horloge and Avignon-Center train station to understand the sudden transformation of this religious city into a forward-looking provincial town.
