This is behind the palace of the popes and no one visits . It is very beautiful dedicated to saint Pierre . Go in the front door and put the back door on the right to see the walls of the church.

The doors and façade were what we first noticed when eating in the square one evening. Later in our visit we saw the church was unlocked, and wandered in, which was well worth it.
