An impressive building dominating Place de l'Horloge. During the Avignon Festival weeks this is the location for a succession of street performances.

The Avignon Town Hall has an imposing exterior, as to many Mairies in France. Here they make an effort to have regular interesting exhibitions in the foyer - the Creche Provencale at Christmas, for example. Free.

The Hotel de Ville is located on a wonderful plaza, Place de L'Horloge. The facade is striking and elaborate. You can sit in several restaurants and admire the building and many others nearby. Terrific shopping nearby.
