Notre-Dame Collegiate Church and cloister
Place Meissonnier 30400 Villeneuve-lès-Avignon
Church of Southern Gothic style built in the 14th century by Cardinal Arnaud de Via, nephew of Pope John XXII. It was the chapel of a monastery of canons founded by the cardinal in the 14th century. The cloister, leaning against the north side, served the other buildings of the monastery. This monastery was suppressed during the Revolution and the Collegiate Church became the seat of the parish of Villeneuve, which it still is today. It houses many works of art, the burial tomb of Cardinal de Via, as well as a copy of the famous Pietà de Villeneuve, the original of which is in the Louvre museum.
