Due to disagreements between the King of France and prior Popes, Rome was not deemed “safe”. However, to please his King, Pope Clement V, decided to settle in the French Province of Avignon, making it the capital of the Christian world. Palais des Papes, started out as a small building, but as time marched on, additions happened, making it the monumental giant that it is today. The Palace has housed many people, including popes, soldiers, and even felons. The Palace is open today to the public where people can tour the grounds of the Palace as well as inside.
