Attached to the palais du pape, it is not surprising that the collection is made up of religious paintings from the 13th to 16th centuries. There are many beautiful madonnas including an ethereal and moving painting by Botticelli. Highly recommended.

We were very impressed with the calm atmosphere in the Petit Palais after the crowded Palas des Papes. The galleries displayed a range of beautiful paintings and it was possible to view them without being jostled. It's a definite must see in Avignon.

Our visit to this muse was truly amazing seeing art works which were not only over 600 years old but absolutely stunning in their detail and workmanship! All staff were very friendly and welcoming and the mini 'high tea' at the cafe at the end...More
