    Description

    In de middeleeuwen ging hier de belangrijkste markt van de stad door met zijn slagerij en kruidenzaak. Later, toen in 1447 de schepenen het gemeentehuis oprichtten in de voormalige gebouwen van het kardinaalspaleis van Albane, werd het duidelijk dat het plein uitgebreid moest worden. Er werd een Jacquemart-klok geïnstalleerd op de top van de toren. Dankzij deze klok draagt dit grote plein zijn huidige naam. In 1793 werd het plein “Place de la Révolution” genoemd. Tijdens het keizerrijk van Napoleon III en de IIIᵉ Republiek zullen een reeks grote verfraaiingswerken in de stad de huidige aanblik aan het plein geven. In 1823 wordt het nieuwe theater opgetrokken op de ruïnes van het voormalige klooster Saint Laurent. Ernaast wordt in datzelfde jaar het stadhuis opgericht. Vanaf de 19e eeuw speelde het stadtheater een essentiële rol in het lokale leven. Het werd afgewerkt in 1847 en de ingang werd geflankeerd door twee grote standbeelden van Molière en Corneille, zittend in een stoel. Deze twee beelden werden uitgehouwen door lokale beeldhouwers, de broers Brian. De zaal is ingericht als een theater in Italiaanse renaissancestijl met een parterre, vier reeksen galerijen en een versierd plafond. De place de l’Horloge is een symbolische plaats voor alle inwoners van Avignon en alle theaterliefhebbers die er zich verdringen tijdens het festival in juli.

      Description

      In the Middle Ages it was a simple crossroads where the town’s main market, with its butcher’s and herb seller’s, was held. When, in 1447, the consuls established the town’s administrative centre in the old buildings of the Livrée of Albane, it was felt that the square needed to be enlarged. A Jacquemart clock was installed at the top of the tower. It is the clock that gives this grand square its name. In 1793 it was renamed Place de la Révolution. The square’s current layout is a result of the major improvement work carried out in the town during the Second Empire and Third Republic. The new theatre was built in 1853 on the ruins of the ancient monastery of St Laurent. The town hall was erected next door in 1853. The Municipal Theatre, dating from the 19th century, played a key role in local life. The entrance to the building (which was finished in 1847) is flanked by two large statues of Molière and Corneille sitting in a chair, and is the work of local sculptors, the Brian brothers. The auditorium is in the style of an Italian theatre with stalls, four series of galleries and a decorated ceiling. The Place de l’Horloge is a landmark for everyone who lives in Avignon and for theatre-lovers, who eagerly make their way there during the festival in July.
