During Altera Rosa, the Palace of the Popes in Avignon celebrates the Roses and springtime. Thousands of roses occupy the closter of the 'Old Palace', the most ancient part of the Palace of the Popes.
The austere and monachal closter of the pope Benedict 12th is a marvellous casket which emphasizes the beauty of the most emblematic of all flowers.
For Roses lovers, the world of roses is a universe of delight and emotion. Proliferation of colors : mighty red, lemon-yellow, diaphanous pink, delicates shades of violet ; shape of the petals : fine, sensitive, plump or velvet ; it is finally an entrancing parfume.
The infinite variety of shades is just pure delight.
Altera Rosa takes place in May for Ascension week-end, in Avignon's Palace of the Popes. More than 20 000 people came to admire the Roses displayed here and choose their beloved one.
