The cathedral is not large and massive. It is, nonetheless, a thing of beauty. The church and its chapels inside are stunning. We were in awe at so much beauty in such a relatively small cathedral. By the point of time we visited during our two weeks in France, we had already seen many churches in the Loire, in Burgundy... More

Again, although we have visited many churches on our trip to France, it is worth the visit. There is so much history inside the church.

This is not the most attractive cathedral in France, by a long way, compared with, say, Tours or Chartres. However, it does provide some context for the Palais next door and the building is a wonderful contribution to the world heritage site.

A bit underwhelming - but this was the church of the people, who weren't allowed into the Palais next door. Likewise, the Popes never used this church, they had a private chapel for the 500 or so inhabitants of the Palais. Still a couple of Popes are buried here and it is a lovely church.

This cathedral is located next to the Popes Palace and overlooking the cobblestoned square. It is impressive from the outside given its Romanesque style of architecture. It was originally built in the second half of the 12th century but has been renovated a few times since. There is no cost to enter but it is dark and certainly lacks the... More

You should certainly visit Notre Dame des Doms, which is next to the Pope's Palace, its grandeur will impress you

The quiet in this church is well respected so it was a good place to sit and be still, particularly as public seating is rather limited in the large squares outside. The emphasis is very much on the Popes who were based here so it doesn't really have the cosy parish feel, rather it is on the grand ecclesiastical scale... More

This is a lovely Cathedral but is situated right next door to the popes palace and very often gets overlooked as visitors concentrate on its larger neighbour and the bridge d'avignon which are available on a joint ticket. Not the most magnificent nor the largest Cathedral but still well worth a visit.

This church was described very flatteringly by our Guide so we went there. However, it was not pretty or otherwise interesting.
