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...More

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.

A few minutes walk from the Pope's Palace is the Avignon Notre-Dame. Sometimes you can visit inside, it is worth the attempt. The large, gilded statue on top can be seen from all over the city.
