Palace of the Popes

The monumental residence of the 14th-century pontiffs, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the largest Gothic palace in the world (15,000 m2 of floor space, equivalent to the volume of 4 Gothic cathedrals).

The visitor can see over 20 rooms, scenes of historic events, in particular the pope’s private chambers and the frescoes painted by the Italian artist Matteo Giovannetti. The Popes’ Palace also offers the visitor continuous cultural activities throughout the year.

The ticket includes the visit of the Palace of the Popes as well as the histopad which is a touch pad that allows to live  a temporal immersion in the major parts of the monument, entirely re-constituted as they could be in the 14th century.

IMPORTANT: 

Each visitor must go to the line for pre-paid tickets and present their Avignon City Pass or Avignon City Pass.
