Rocher des Doms Gardens

A short walk from the cathedral you’ll find

the Rocher des Doms park. From its peak you

have panoramic views of the Rhone river. It’s

a beautiful park, centred around a pond which

is home to swans and other waterfowl, and

offers a green refuge from the summer heat to

tourists and locals alike.

Clos de la Vigne

Within the Rocher des Doms park the Clos de

la Vigne is the only AOC intramural vineyard

in France on a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The small parcel of vines features 12 grape

varieties for red and white wines. Grapes

are harvested by hand, and in 2021 the first

bottles of matured wine were auctioned

for charity. The vineyard overlooks the river

Rhone and the famous Saint-Bénézet bridge,

the town’s emblem and yet another UNESCO

listed monument in Avignon…
