Place saint Pierre is the most beautiful plaza in Avignon. Very few local people even know this intimist place. The front of the church is exceptional. And the art gallery and the very good and cute little restaurant next to the church belongs to a...More

From our apartment in Avignon, we enjoyed a great view of the church and the sound of the bells, so we decided to pay a visit. It's very nice and has some interesting touches, for example a beautiful old tapestry of the church front. If...More

Well worth a visit, the church is ancient but decorated throughout the centuries as evidenced by the varied side altars. The main altar is quite spectacular too.

We went to Avignon for shopping, the Pope's Palace, and the bridge. This was a free, easy in and easy out church. As far as French churches go, this was just nice. Nothing spectacular, but not disappointing either. Worth a quick stop if you walking...More

This is a lovely church that you should stop in and see - and right on the way while you are exploring the town.

Unfortunately this is abit overshadowed by the popes palace But it is worth a visit. Next to it is a short walk to a garden that will overlook the whole area.

Large ornate church in the centre or the city. Well worth looking inside as it is impressive. The doorway outside is special

This is a church well worth finding and visiting just for the wonderful carved doors at the entrance. Worth taking a look inside. This is a stopping point of the local guide of Avignon - so choose your moment well.

This is behind the palace of the popes and no one visits . It is very beautiful dedicated to saint Pierre . Go in the front door and put the back door on the right to see the walls of the church.
