This shrieks out to you in French and could be nowhere else in the world. The architectural detail is wonderful and a great place for photos or sitting in one of the numerous bars around and watching the world go by

Beautiful building with exhibitions. During the two days we were there various buskers were performing in front of the building which provides great accoustics. This are is very lively a good place for people spotting.

Lovely, imposing building from the front. Just had a look inside the main foyer where there was an exhibition by a local artist, interesting and a few welcome minutes out of the heat.

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.
