The site is not extraordinary but after some stairs you reach the top where you can have a nice view. There are also some minor attractions in the park.

The place is next to the Papal Palace. The gardens are nice but nothing spectacular. Location is nice as the view is superb.

Hidden behind the Palais des Papes is a small garden where you will find a amazing panoramic view of Avignon and its surroundings.

I was disappointed to find there weren't elaborate gardens in this park. It's quite a long uphill walk and is worthwhile if you're looking for a good place to take pictures overlooking the city and the river, but not for much else.

Interesting area with good views of the river and Pont D’Avignon as well as the old and new towns. Nice restaurant in the middle. Avoid the public toilets they are awful.
