This is a lovely church that you should stop in and see - and right on the way while you are exploring the town.

Unfortunately this is abit overshadowed by the popes palace But it is worth a visit. Next to it is a short walk to a garden that will overlook the whole area.

Large ornate church in the centre or the city. Well worth looking inside as it is impressive. The doorway outside is special

This is a church well worth finding and visiting just for the wonderful carved doors at the entrance. Worth taking a look inside. This is a stopping point of the local guide of Avignon - so choose your moment well.

This is behind the palace of the popes and no one visits . It is very beautiful dedicated to saint Pierre . Go in the front door and put the back door on the right to see the walls of the church.
