The Avignon City Walls are preserved fortifications in the historical city of Avignon in France . The whole old city of Avignon is surrounded with ramparts that had been built on order by Pope Innocent VI between 1355 and 1368. The ramparts had been built in irregular distances. The structure comprises 8 gates and 39 towers. The total length of the Avignon City Walls is 4.8 km. The ramparts are well-preserved also due to the repair work during the 19th and 20th century.
