    Description

    Deze toren is het enige restant van een vesting die gebouwd werd in de XIIIe eeuw op bevel van koning Filips IV De Schone van Frankrijk. Hij werd gebouwd aan de ingang van de Pont d’Avignon om de toegang tot deze brug te kunnen controleren. De toren was dus van strategisch belang in het Zuid-Frankrijk van de middeleeuwen. De architect van de koning, Randolphe de Mornel, werkt in 1303 de eerste verdieping van de toren af. Wanneer de toren beter wordt uitgerust om struikrovers op afstand te houden omstreeks 1360, wordt hij verhoogt met één verdieping in gotische stijl. Vandaag kan je trouwens nog steeds de oude waterspuwers zien op de tweede verdieping. De mooie gewelfde zalen bieden onderdak aan kunstexposities. Op de eerste verdieping vindt u een digitale maquette in toegevoegde realiteit die de volledige Pont d’Avignon weergeeft met zijn 22 brugbogen, samen met de evolutie door de eeuwen heen van zowel de brug als het totaalbeeld van het rivierlandschap. Vanop het dakterras kunt u genieten van een uniek panorama over Villeneuve lez Avignon, Avignon en de Rhônevallei. Als u een kijkje neemt op dit dakterras, kunt u zien hoe de Rhône met zijn twee armen het Île de la Barthelasse omsluit. Het majestueuse Palais des Papes torent hoog uit boven de daken en klokkentorens van Avignon. Verder wordt het vergezicht in het noorden enkel begrensd door de Mont Ventoux, de Dentelles van Montmirail en in het zuiden, door de bergketen van de Alpilles. Als u in de verte kijkt in de richting van Avignon, ziet u hoe de vallei van de Luberon zich aftekent en zich uitstrekt naar de Durance. De bron van deze laatste rivier ontspringt in de Alpen en mondt uit in de Rhône iets voorbij Avignon. De toren werd geklasseerd als historisch monument in 1862.

      Description

      Tour philippe lebel This dungeon is the only remains of a fortress built in the 13th century on order of King of France, Philippe the 4th, said Philippe le Bel. It was built in the entrance of the Bridge of Avignon to control its access. It thus had a strategic importance in the medieval South of France. The architect of king Randolphe de Mornel ends the first floor of the tower in 1303. By 1360, during a necessary improvement to hold in respect bandits: a Gothic style upper storey was added, and we can still observe the former gargoyles of the second floor. Beautiful arched rooms welcome artistic exhibitions. On the first floor is presented a digital model in increased reality of the Bridge of Avignon in its entirety with its 22 arcs, its evolution over the centuries and that of the whole river landscape. From its roof-terrace you can admire an exceptional panorama on Villeneuve-lez-Avignon, Avignon and the Rhône valley. If you go up there, you can observe the Rhône which two arms embrace the Island of Barthelasse. The powerful Popes’ Palace appears clearly above the roofs and bell towers of Avignon. Farther the sight is limited northward only by the Mount Ventoux, the Dentelles de Montmirail and in the South, by the Alpilles hills. If you look far off in the direction of Avignon, the valley of the Lubéron goes on towards the Durance River that comes from the heart of Hautes-Alpes and joins the Rhone just after Avignon. The tower has been classified as « Historic Monument » since 1862. 1-tour philippe lebel This dungeon is the only remains of a fortress built in the 13th century on order of King of France, Philippe the 4th, said Philippe le Bel.
