Notre Dame des Doms Cathedral

The Doms Cathedral, or “Notre Dame des Doms”, is, with the “pont d’Avignon” and “Palais des papes” one of the most famous monument in the city.

Three statues of virgin Mary are present there, measuring from a dozen centimeters to six meters, for the one on top of the cathedral.

Erected in Avignon more than a millenium ago, the cathedral was destroyed several times, to starting with the sarrasins in 731, then rebuilt about four hundred years later in 1111. Then the French revolution came and temporarly turned the cathedral into a prison.

Only one tower was erected at the time, as the provencal architectural tradition suggests.

You can visit it and hear its two organs typical sound from 4:30pm to 6:30pm during the summer.
