This cathedral is surprisingly unspectacular, considering its location next to the Palais du Papes. On the plus side you can visit it, most major churches I attempted to visit were closed.

The cathedral is in the vicinity of the Pope's palace. The building itself is impressive and also the interior is worth seeing. There are two tombs of popes inside and quite a lot of statues and paintings.

Another European church, I know....but this one stands next to the papal palace on a rise, so the views are stunning of the river and bridge on one side, and the palace on the other. The adjacent park is a good place to relax and people-watch.

The facade and the small square in front of the cathedral are very interesting and beautiful. The interior is the regular french cathedral, prerry but nothing out of the ordinary.

This is a really historic building, with many significant changes to the use and occupancy. Sadly much of the history is just touched upon and not explored in depth. Worth a visit if you are in Avignon, make sure you get the ticket that allows entrance to the bridge as well.

The cathedral is overshadowed by the Palais des Papes, and is easy to miss. Nevertheless, you should take a look at its interiors, unusual. Don't miss the oldest part of the church, in pure Roman style with the period baptismal font as you enter.

Take time to walk around and take in every angle! Walk to the overlook at the river. Take a moment to savor the sounds at the main plaza in front of the church. Beautiful church in a beautiful city!!

Be sure and visit this lovely cathedral adjacent to the Palais des Papes. Admission is free and it is the perfect location for quiet meditation and prayer.

This is a very stunning church above the Pope's Palace; and in my opinion a better option. Also the park and views from the park are stunning.

A very nice cathedral which you should visit if you have time. Not a destination cathedral but near the Pope's Palace and worth a stop. Perhaps I was expecting more since it is in teh city where a number of Popes lived in teh middle Ages.
