This Roman Catholic Church is situated beside the Palais des Papes and it seats the Archbishop. It was in the second half of the 12th century that the cathedral building was built. The bell tower had collapsed in 1405 but was reconstructed again by 1425. The extension of the building was done during 1670 – 1672. The building was left unmaintained during Revolution, but was later restored and the interiors were filled with art. The most prominent feature is the glided Statue of Virgin Mary situated on top of the bell tower.

A magical place to be. It is hard to imagine how they built such an incredible monument back then. It is no wonder a UNESCO site.
A moving Mass; beautiful Cathedral overlooking the walled city.
It’s worthy to come to this place, it is quiet, with a nice energy and an nice architecture.
