Yet another beautiful building in a small town of beautiful buildings. We actually began wandering and went down some back streets, thus discovering even more interesting architecture.

Nice and impressive from outside, especially the tower above it. From inside... just a dull offices building, definitely not worth s visit!

We were curious after passing the Hotel de Ville several times of the interior of the place. Hence we passed the security at the entrance and had a walk-over of the place. Being a functional city hall, it was just another government building with offices and few empty halls for potential exhibition if any. We were able to explore the... More

Beautiful build for the City Hall in the classic style. It is enhanced by columns and flags of the country and the city. Looks very elegant in the place where it's located.

I like the variety of architecture you find in the city halls around France. Always interesting, if occasionally overdone. With its location proximate to the Pope's Palace, you can't miss it.

This is an impressive building on one side of the Place de l'Horloge, and which is still clearly used for administrative purposes. We thought about trying to get inside, but were quickly dissuaded by the heavy police security immediately inside the door. Consequently all we could do was admire the exterior. Behind, and above the building, is the tower containing... More

This is a beautiful building steeped in history. We were fortunate to have had some assistance educating us on the historical perspectives. This is a lovely building and well worth the visit.

Hotel de Ville is located in the busy, central square of Avignon. There are lots of nearby restaurants and other beautiful buildings. I didn't try to go inside but I doubt they want tourists wandering around in there. Free to look at.

Avignon’s Hotel de Ville is located next to the Opera Theatre d'Avignon on the Place de l'Horlage. Being situated on the most important square of the city’s historic center insures that it will be seen by hordes of tourists. I didn’t get inside the Hotel de Ville, but I got some nice photos of this big, handsome building. I regret... More
