The Palais des Papes is a gothic style building more a fortress than of a palace.

You have to go inside to get to get a sense of the richness of the papal court.

There is a pedestrian area with several streets full of shops.

You will find a large variety of well stocked luxury shops.

Plus ceramics and pottery and other specialities of the Provence region.

There is a flea market on Sunday mornings and a farmers market on Saturday between May and October.
