Avignon Cathedral (Cathedrale Notre-Dame des Doms) Tours

Perched between the magnificent UNESCO-listed Palais des Papes and the hilltop Rocher des Doms, the Avignon Cathedral (Cathedrale Notre-Dame des Doms) is somewhat eclipsed by its neighboring tourist magnets. While the Cathedral’s comparatively demure façade fails to incite the same gasps as the castle-like Palais, its iconic bell tower, capped with a 4.5-tonne gold statue of the Virgin Mary, still demands attention from the passing crowds. 

The cathedral has a history dating back to the 12th century, but the majority of the present-day building dates from the 15th and 17th centuries. Most notable are the richly decorated Romanesque-style interiors, where highlights include a 12th century marble throne, a beautiful gilded organ and a chapel dedicated to John XXII, housing an array of artifacts and religious icons.

Practical Info

Avignon Cathedral is located on Place du Palais, next to the Palais des Papes in central Avignon and is open daily from 7.30am-8pm. Mass is held each morning and the cathedral also hosts concerts during the summer Festival d’Avignon.
