Quite Stunning

This is a very stunning church above the Pope's Palace; and in my opinion a better option. Also the park and views from the park are stunning.

Be sure and visit this lovely cathedral adjacent to the Palais des Papes. Admission is free and it is the perfect location for quiet meditation and prayer.

A very nice cathedral which you should visit if you have time. Not a destination cathedral but near the Pope's Palace and worth a stop. Perhaps I was expecting more since it is in teh city where a number of Popes lived in teh middle Ages.

This small cathedral is next to the Palace of the Popes. The stained glass windows are beautiful & so are the chapels. The gardens next door are a must visit as the views from there are stunning. You can see for miles in 3 directions from the gardens.

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.

Thank KjunCelt
