A really beautiful and very elaborate façade. Quite enjoyable. Located on a nice square with reasonably priced restaurants.

This building has an exquisite facade and has been beautifully cared for. We did not go inside, but one has to stop and admire its arquitecture of the times.

Avignon's city hall is quite impressive looking. It is located right next to the opera house on a large square. You can just walk by.

Another Hotel de Ville, but the history is great. Sights are cool and the atmosphere takes you back in time.

Avignon is chock full of history and everywhere we walked were landmarks from the 11th century forward (actually, from the Roman days forward, to be more accurate). The city hall is a dignified building, several centuries old, and stands adjacent to the beautiful opera house...More
