13/35.- Avignon, Place de l'Horloge


Leaving the 'Place du Palais' you get to the 'Place de l'Horloge' (=Clocktower Square). In this square you will not only find the merry-go-round you see in the photo and many bars and restaurants, but also three interesting houses: the Town Hall, the Jean Vilar House and the Opera.

The Town Hall was erected in 19th century, surrounding a 14th century tower. The Jean Vilar House, on Mons street, is a lovely 17th century building, and currently houses the Avignon Festival archives and many objects related to the theater and dance world. The Opera is the building that sits on our right, let's take it a look ...
