The Palais des Papes is an historical palace located in Avignon, southern France. It is one of the largest and most important medieval Gothic buildings in Europe. Once a fortress and palace, the papal residence was the seat of Western Christianity during the 14th century.
Hôtel des Monnaies
Located opposite the Palais des Papes (Papal Palace), the Old Mint now houses the Conservatoire. The façade is emblazoned with dragons and eagles, emblems of the Italian Borghese family.

Dom's Garden
Located in the centre of town, atop the rock that overlooks Avignon, this public garden in the English style rises to 30 meters above the Rhone river.
Since the 18th century, these gardens have been a popular strolling spot for Avignon inhabitants and for visitors. A haven of refreshing coolness, a pleasant escape from the summer heat, with its lake, lush trees and rock gardens. The gardens are open every day, with opening hours varying according to the season (between 7:30 am and 8:30 pm).
