    Description

    The Place des Carmes – literally the ‘Square of the Carmelites’ – is the old cemetery of the Carmelite convent. Until the mid-20th century it was the site of a covered market, and the square still bustles with a traditional flea market on Sunday mornings. The Place des Carmes is a pretty square in the old centre of Avignon, lined with huge plane trees and dominated by the iconic Grands Augustins bell tower. The Augustinian convent stood on this spot before being destroyed during the French Revolution. People gather here to chat in the shade in the heat of summer. The Carmelite cloister, which is situated next to the church, was one of the convents built in Avignon during the 13th century. It was renovated and adorned during the pontificates of John XII and Clement VI. Following a restoration in the early 20th century, it is now one of the venues for the Festival of Avignon. The Carmelite church boasts the largest nave and the only intact cloister. St Symphorien, built in 1267, is the cloister’s church. It was consecrated on April 10, 1520. It became the venue for public meetings during the Revolution and then the seat of the Jacobins of Avignon. In 1803 it was awarded the parish title of St Symphorien. Numerous works of art are on display here: not just sculptures and paintings but also a gilded wooden altar.

        Description

        Dit plein ligt op het voormalige kerkhof van het karmelietenklooster. Het was het middelpunt van een overdekte markt tot het midden van de XXe eeuw. Elke zondagochtend gaat hier nog steeds een traditionele rommelmarkt door. De Place des Carmes is een mooi plein in het oude stadscentrum van Avignon, omzoomd door reusachtige platanen en het wordt gedomineerd door de karakteristieke klokkentoren van de Grands Augustins. Hier stond het augustijnenklooster dat vernield werd tijdens de Revolutie. Op dit plein komen de mensen samen om er op warme dagen een praatje te slaan in de schaduw. Het karmelietenklooster grenst aan de kerk. Het is één van de kloosters die in de loop van de XIIIᵉ eeuw in Avignon opgetrokken werden. Het werd gerenoveerd en opgeknapt onder paus Johannes XII en paus Clemens VI. Het werd gerestaureerd aan het begin van de XXe eeuw en is één van de theatergebouwen van het Festival d’Avignon. De karmelietenkerk bezit de grootste middenbeuk en het enige intacte klooster. Saint Symphorien, opgebouwd in 1267, is de kerk van het klooster. Ze werd ingewijd op 10 april 1520. Tijdens de Revolutie gingen hier de openbare vergaderingen door en nadien werd het de zetel van de jakobijnen in Avignon. In 1803 ontving ze de parochiale titel Saint Symphorien. In de kerk vinden we talrijke kunstwerken terug, zoals beeldhouwwerken, schilderijen, maar ook het altaar in verguld hout.
