This big church is in the area next to the Palais so easy to stop in and enjoy. Very large and majestic - we went in while mass was being said so we didn't stay long.

Same period as Palais des Papes but it's been extended and renovated over the centuries. There are a couple of important artworks inside.

This cathedral is surprisingly unspectacular, considering its location next to the Palais du Papes. On the plus side you can visit it, most major churches I attempted to visit were closed.

The cathedral is in the vicinity of the Pope's palace. The building itself is impressive and also the interior is worth seeing. There are two tombs of popes inside and quite a lot of statues and paintings.

The facade and the small square in front of the cathedral are very interesting and beautiful. The interior is the regular french cathedral, prerry but nothing out of the ordinary.

This is a really historic building, with many significant changes to the use and occupancy. Sadly much of the history is just touched upon and not explored in depth. Worth a visit if you are in Avignon, make sure you get the ticket that allows...More

The cathedral is overshadowed by the Palais des Papes, and is easy to miss. Nevertheless, you should take a look at its interiors, unusual. Don't miss the oldest part of the church, in pure Roman style with the period baptismal font as you enter.
