Once a Roman cathedral, Cathedrale St-Siffrein is now a beautiful Roman Catholic Church, from the fifteenth century, made as per the command of Benedict XIII. The building process began in 1409 and continued for another hundred and fifty years. It is known to have been designed by seven different architects. The chief entrance door was built in 1512–1514. It was modified a hundred years later, and renovated again in 2000–2002. The tower was built in the early twentieth century. Cathedrale St-Siffrein is a national monument of France. It is known for its magnificent architecture and historic value. Until the 19th century, Carpentras Cathedral was the seat of the bishops of Carpentras, to one of whom, Saint Siffredus (French: Saint Siffrein), it is dedicated. However, the diocese was abolished in the Concordat of 1801 and added to the Diocese of Avignon, and the cathedral became a church.
