  • You do not unnecessary steps in Avignon... everything is focused... and this Cathedral is very beautiful... you can't miss her, she is just next to the Palace of the Popes... enjoy your visit.

  • It is a cathedral and only for this reason if you go sightseeing to any city I understand that you must visit. If it is true that it is very austere and almost no works of art, but the building itself is a marvel, it looks like a fortress, like many of that region. Highlight its cloister and facade.

  • I was a little disappointed by the Interior of the Cathedral which is really "in its own juice" so to speak. The Interior is very dark, quite damaged, to see to the historical aspect, the tomb of the Pope... The situation is magnificent overlooking the square just next to the Palace of the Popes
