    Description

    Een eerste gebouw werd opgetrokken in de VIIe eeuw en werd vernield door de saracenen. Hierin zouden de graftombes van de eerste bisschoppen van Avignon zijn ondergebracht, waaronder die van Saint Agricol. Dankzij de vrijgevigheid van kardinaal Pierre des Prés, werden in 1358 kanunnikengebouwen en het klooster gesticht, dat vandaag de dag verdwenen is. Paus Innocentius VI maakt er een collegiale kerk van. In de XVᵉ eeuw werd de middenbeuk verlengd en uitgebreid met nieuwe kapellen. Het plein ervoor dateert van 1486, maar de klokkentoren werd pas in 1495 opgetrokken. De bouw van de voorgevel die rijkelijk versierd werd en doorspekt is met maniëristische elementen, werd tussen 1511 en 1524 uitgevoerd. De houten poorten zijn een mooi voorbeeld van de renaissancekunst in de Provence en werden uitgehouwen door Antoine Volard in 1551. De heilige Maagd die tussen de twee poorten staat opgesteld en kunstzinnig werd uitgewerkt heeft de kerk te danken aan de beitel van beeldhouwer Peru. Wanneer u de opmerkelijke elementen binnenin de kerk bezichtigt, neemt u dan de tijd om de preekstoel van naderbij te bekijken, evenals het kerkkoor dat rijkelijk versierd werd in de XVIIᵉ eeuw. Vanaf 1840 werd de kerk geklasseerd als historisch monument.

      Description

      The first building was erected in the 7th century, only to be destroyed by the Saracens. It is said to have housed the tombs of the first bishops of Avignon, including St Agricol’s. It was thanks to the generosity of Cardinal Pierre des Prés that the buildings in the canon and cloister (which are no longer extant) were erected in 1358. Pope Innocent VI established it as a collegiate church. The nave was extended in the 15th century and new chapels were added. The square in front of the church dates from 1486, although the bell tower only dates back to 1495, and the façade, with its wealth of flamboyant decoration dotted with Mannerist allusions, was completed between 1511 and 1524. The wooden doors, which are a fine example of Renaissance art in Provence, were carved by Antoine Villard in 1551. The Virgin, which is located between the two doors crafted with such skill, was carved by Péru. Among the noteworthy items inside the church, take the time to admire the cantor’s pulpit and the richly-decorated 17th-century choir. The building was classified as a historic monument in 1840.
