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 entrance to the bridge as well.

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.

Take time to walk around and take in every angle! Walk to the overlook at the river. Take a moment to savor the sounds at the main plaza in front of the church. Beautiful church in a beautiful city!!

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.

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.

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
