This is behind the palace of the popes and no one visits . It is very beautiful dedicated to saint Pierre . Go in the front door and put the back door on the right to see the walls of the church.

From our apartment in Avignon, we enjoyed a great view of the church and the sound of the bells, so we decided to pay a visit. It's very nice and has some interesting touches, for example a beautiful old tapestry of the church front. If...More

You'd never think so modestly as to call this Gothic jewel a mere parish church, but it is. It is located in a square in the center of Avignon. You can't really go inside, we were told, but the outside had more than enough architectural...More

The doors and façade were what we first noticed when eating in the square one evening. Later in our visit we saw the church was unlocked, and wandered in, which was well worth it.

St. Peter's is more a church than museum. It does have a stunning doorway and windows that have survived more than a few wars. Beautiful courtyard and behind the church are many restaurants and cafes to choose from.
