This grand old building is in the center of the Ancient City of Avignon. You can spend as much time as you like...people watching on the square.

Just a nice building to look at. No entry fee. Was nice and good escape from the heat of Avignon in June.

An elegant nineteenth century town hall overlooking Avignon's main square. The clock tower is particularly attractive.

It is only 100 meters from pope's palace. Nice building to have it in your pictures. The place just in front is foul of groups.

France has many an attractive Hotel de Ville, and the Avignon Hotel de Ville is both attractive and imposing. Be sure to stand back to see the clock tower. On a Saturday afternoon, we saw a wedding here.

We entered this building looking for a restroom (did not find) but were amazed by the architectural interest and memorial aspects of the grand entry room. Spent about 20 minutes and reading the lists of dead was very moving. Saw French families with young children looking at various displays.

Nothing much happened, we were there for some talks, in a beautiful room. I was let in although I had forgot to register beforehand. Don't know if other things happen there normally, but it was nice to just look like I did as well.

This is a beautiful building well worth a look at, right in the centre of the old walled city. There was a very good photographic display in the foyer.

The place is beautiful inside out - don't miss it if you tour the plaza, it's a short visit and really nice. We enjoyed the different works of art spread around the rooms the most - look for rooms that are ok to enter to, and you'll discover wonderful paintings.

Hotel de Ville stands alongside Place de l'Horloge and attracts few visitors, probably because one suspects (as did we) that it is an hotel. It is in fact the city offices, but is more like a war memorial. Inside you will find long (and terrible) lists of the war dead from Avignon (children, civilians, soldiers) with the French tricolour mounted... More
