I went in the church today. It has old wooden carved doors that can be seen from the outside when the church is open. The inside of the church has good decorations, along with some paintings and sculptures. There is no fee to enter.

The exterior promises much but the interior is rather plain and not of any particular merit. Don't miss the doors however.

Saint Pierre Church was built during the 14th century and has a flamboyant Gothic style. It is located right in the centre of Avignon in place Saint-Pierre, a cobbled stoned square. The sculpted doors are beautiful. The church was a place of calm and rest in this busy city and I thought it was well worth a visit.

We visited St. Pierre twice during our stay in Avignon. It is a beautiful church from the outside and inside with lovely walnut doors. It is located on a square that bears its name very near the Palais de Papes. A simple altar inside the church has flowers and a note remembering the recent victims of terrorism in France.

Beautiful peaceful church. The colored light reflected everywhere from the stain glass windows was just amazing. Lovely carved doors.

The Eglise Saint Pierre is located in the center of Avignon. We were attracted to it by the Gothic facade and intrigued by the wooden doors. The interior is not particularly interesting to us, though the multipanelled high Renaissance alter is said to be a work of art. We walked from Saint Pierre east to the synagogue, then to the...

We attended Sunday mass. Well led, good singing and homily (what we could understand ...!) Feels warm and friendly and centre of the community.

The Church of St. Peter is a beautiful monument in Avignon. The stone carving and carving on the wooden doors is superb!
