Saw this on a day trip from Marseille. Well worth the 120 plus steps, it has some of the best views in Southern France, and the church is magnificent! Put this on the list!

Was closed when we were around and it did not feel like worth a wait until it opens. Nice from outside, though not impressing or anything, and from the pictures it seems to reflect the inside

Cathedrale Notre-Dame des Doms next to the Pope's Palace and frequently overlooked by visitors or assumed as part of the palace. If time permit, take time to visit the cathedral and the magnificent statues in front. The photo taking of the frontage may prove difficult specially trying to incorporate the statues and the cathedral within one photo. Take few minutes... More

A huge cathedral since the France under Roman occupation, a Romanesque and a symbol of papal power that makes Avignon the center of it all, from political, religious and economic might.

An absolutely beautiful church with wonderful works of art. However, be careful how you time your visit as it closes at 1pm (we never did find out if it re-opens!)

I am not Catholic (Protestant) but decided to dress appropriately and attend part of the mass. First time for me and it was special. Also the beautiful sound of the clock chiming before every 15 minutes. It is a pity that some tourists do not show enough respect during the service- talking, dressed in very short shorts and one person... More

Another place to visit when in the city. No Entrance Fee but but has strange opening times. We walked up the steps to go in but the doors were shut, as we stood there the doors were opened by the local administrator. Bit luck as there were no indcations on what times it was open.

The outside crucifixion is impressive as is the Madonna on top. Ut inside is fairly plain, we went to Sunday mass here and afterwards the priest shook hands with everyone on the way out which was a nice touch.
