Only a stone's throw from the Palais des Papes, this houses a collection of mainly mediaeval paintings and sculptures from the surrounding area in a historic building. It's quiet - no Chinese portfolio freaks here! - and, best of all, there's a bijou tea room...More

I was amazed at the extraordinary collection of religious works of art of the 13 and 14 centuries. They are very well exhibited with much care for the temperature etc. The Boticelli works are extraordinary.

A beautiful building with a lovely courtyard entrance. Considering it was a rainy day there were hardly any other visitors. The paintings are principally religious in theme with a couple of wonderful Caravaggio's. That man could paint! Free entrance which was a bonus. Only three...More
