We went with no expectations (as we were in the vicinity) and came away with no real remembrances - a very blah experience.

Cool place to rest tired feet during a heat wave in August. Free to enter, very interesting interior. See the palace, then the cathedral, and end with a walk up to the park to the lookout point of the Avignon bridge.

I ducked in here to avoid the rain at the end of a long day and was captivated by this small church. It was the first church we had been in in France which had wood panelling lining the altar. I had admired its gold statue outside near the Palais des Papes but didn't go in from the square. I literally stumbled upon it while leaving the Rocher des Domes park. It was surprisingly simple inside and so beautiful. A very quiet place to chill out and admire.

Having seen the Cathedral from the square and Popes Palais, it was disappointing that it wasn't open when we were there. It is a pristine looking building from the outside and has a beautiful gold statue of the virgin Mary on the top.

Located next to the Palais des Papes, it is impressive looking on the outside. We did not go inside. It has a mixture of architectural styles.

We had been around this area for a few days and after our tour of the Popes Palace decided to visit the Cathedral, also. We spent a good amount of time on the outside, just the statues of the crucifixion and the gold statue of the Virgin Mary on the top give you good photo ops. But when we went to go inside (we waited with some other visitors at the opening time) it did not open on time. We waited about 15 minutes but it still had not opened, even though some people came and went, trying the door and leaving when they saw it did not open. We gave up after awhile, as we had more to do in Avignon. We did visit the gift shop to the right of the cathedral, though and it was very nice.

This is a lovely church. The most impressive thing is the gold statue on the top of the dome. The church is not large.

Alongside the Palace of the Popes, the Cathedral in Avignon towers above the square, with a golden statue of the Virgin Mary above the surprisingly ungainly 19th century bell tower which replaced the previous one and doesn't feel quite right.

The cathedral is primarily a Romanesque building dating from the 12th century, but with inevitable flourishes of Gothic and Baroque. It was abandonded after the French Revolution but restored in the late 1830's.

Inside are important monuments and sculptures but there is little information to guide you, which is a pity.

An important building - Avignon Cathedral, which is the Archbishop's seat. Built in the 12th century, the cathedral is dedicated to Miriam, and is listed as a historical monument in 1840. If you are interested in architecture, you will see that the cathedral is distinctly Romanesque in style with some Greek and Roman influences. On the top of the cathedral bell tower you can see the statue of the Virgin Mary, created in 1859. If you wish, you can also enter and be impressed by the many spectacular works of art inside the cathedral, including three statues of the Virgin Mary. There are also some interesting landmarks within the cathedral, including Pope John Twenty-second and the Marble Throne, which the Pope used in the 12th century.

Admission is free.

Opening Hours: Daily 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The hours may vary according to religious ceremonies.

How long should you visit? About half an hour.

although this major church is next to the Palais des Papes, i was disappointed both by the exterior and interior of this church. Nothing much to see.
