A really beautiful and very elaborate façade. Quite enjoyable. Located on a nice square with reasonably priced restaurants.

Walked by this beautiful building while on our tour of the area. Didn’t go in but heard about the history of it. The facade is richly carved and typical of the French style.

I thought this building and the municipal theatre were the best-looking structures on the town square. And though I would rank this city hall as indeed good, it was not especially outstanding compared to some of the magnificent ones I have seen throughout Europe. Built...More

This building has an exquisite facade and has been beautifully cared for. We did not go inside, but one has to stop and admire its arquitecture of the times.

A grand municipal building that is indistinguishable from those in many other French towns and cities. Located in Place de l'Horloge, built-in 1846, it has the dubious honour of blocking most of the view of the 1471 clock tower for which the square is named.

Avignon's city hall is quite impressive looking. It is located right next to the opera house on a large square. You can just walk by.

Another Hotel de Ville, but the history is great. Sights are cool and the atmosphere takes you back in time.

As part of our walking tour, we paused in front of the Avignon Town Hall. We've seen a lot of town halls this trip and this one is just as gorgeous as the others that we have seen.

Avignon is chock full of history and everywhere we walked were landmarks from the 11th century forward (actually, from the Roman days forward, to be more accurate). The city hall is a dignified building, several centuries old, and stands adjacent to the beautiful opera house...More
