I usually go there with groups of tourists and I find this church pretty amazing! Beautiful and simple yet must see.

If it's boiling hot and you need to get out of the sun for a couple hours, this is a great thing to do. It's worth buying the audio guide and you can purchase tickets on line and then queue barge when you arrive. Great views of town and fascinating history of Avignon

I'm gonna talk just about the tower visit.To me this was a little bit disappointing. Maybe was my fault. I thought this would be in my top 3 cathedrals but is not.

Beautiful on the outside, but the inside takes your breath away. The gold madonna is visible for miles and information on the history of the church is available inside. Be sure to see the small area which was the original site from the 500's.

So disappointed that the cathedral was closed for refurbishment and won't reopen until next year. Looks great from the outside,

In the same large Place du Palais that belonged at the times to the Avignon Papacy and now is a beautiful public space, we found the gorgeous cathedral of Avignon, called Cathedral Notre-Dame des Doms.It is a Roman Catholic cathedral and a national monument of France.
