Worth a visit for the impressive baroque style and majesty. Avignon is full of ancient churches, and this is an excellent example.

We have frequently visited this beautiful Gothic Basilica in the heart of Avignon, located not far from the Palais des Papes, It is a great place to spend some quiet moments of reflection and prayer while visiting the city and is filled with beautiful art.

Avignon is known for its many churches. One of the smallest but most charming churches in Avignon is St. Peter's Church, built in stunning Gothic style. The church was founded in the middle of the 14th century on the remains of an earlier church from the 7th century. Before entering the church, you should take a look at the beautiful carvings of the doors. Inside, you can see numerous works of art from the religious genre.

Admission is free.

Opening Hours: Daily from 10am to midnight.

How long should you visit? Up to half an hour.

in one of the oldest churches of the city, you will be touched by the abundance of old paintings. Also relics of Pierre de Luxembourg.

Tucked away in a quiet side street with an impressive frontage and doors is this church. Its tower is visible in various parts of the city but walking you could easily pass without entering. And internally it is special. Lovely stained glass windows, huge old paintings, decorated side altars and the dark main altar area which as you approach becomes more clear as a beautiful series of paintings and icons.A peaceful place to spend some quiet contemplative time.

Disclaimer: I have a weakness for medieval Gothic churches.

That said, Eglise Saint-Pierre is a winner. The bland exterior walls give no clue to the vast space, classic architecture, grand altar, beautiful chapels and stained glass.

The interior, in its way, is a work of art; if you love art, that is reason to go.

There are no shortage of Churches (and a Cathedral - see separate Review) to visit in Avignon but - save yourself a lot of time and effort - and go to the Eglise Saint Pierre (conveniently located immediately behind the Cathedral/Palais des Papes) first!!

It is impressive both inside and outside - you won’t be disappointed!!

This church is located more or less midway between the Place d'Horlogue and Les Halles so very close to the town center. It's not an enormous church but the interior is quite special. The organ is in the process of restoration so please do give a donation. The alter is amazing but that is nothing compared to the paintings on either side of the nave. The stained glass windows are wonderful. It's also nice and cool when the outside temperature is over 40'.
