The Palace of the Popes, part of UNESCO World Heritage, stands as the symbol of the church's way over the western Christian world in the 14th Century. There are cultural events all year long at the Palace, with art exhibitions, educational opportunities, theme visits, concerts and other. During the month of July, there are theatre performances as part of the Festival d’Avignon, founded by Jean Vilar in 1947, which take place in the Honour Courtyard at the Palace.
