5 reviews of Place des Carmes

Iconic bell tower

It's a nice old center square of Avignon, dominated by the iconic bell tower of the Great Augustinians. In this place once stood the Augustinian monastery, destroyed during the French Revolution. In the center, there is an iron structure that previously harbored a small flea market. Immigrants of the city met below what was the old vegetable market of the square and in the nineteenth century it moved to this square. Now there is a Provencal market held a few days a week. A highlight is the church and convent of the Carmelites, a kind of public garden. People come together in this beautiful historic building to chat in the shade during the hottest days.
