The old world charm of France is reinstated and rekindled whenever one thinks of Avignon Les Halles, the largest marketplace there. It has served as a hangout hub for the residents of the historic commune of Avignon. Their reputation has been established by authors such as Peter Mayle or Jean Viard . The northern facade of 6 ha (6,458 square ft.) is covered with a green wall designed by Patrick Blanc. Its authenticity makes it a major tourist attraction. It is better known as the city of the popes. The chief commodities traded here are bread, cheese, fruits, vegetables, poultry, baked goods, deli, olives, shells, flowers, and organic and exotic products. Citizens are usually butchers, fishmongers, creamer, caterer or cellar. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Avignon trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
