Long Description:

[FR]

L'Hôtel Calvet de la Palun,ancienne banque de France, ferme la place du Palais au sud. Sa date de construction, 1789, en fait l’un des derniers hôtels construits dans l’Avignon propriété pontificale. Dessiné par Jean-Pierre Franque, il "constitue une excellente réminiscence du château du Petit Trianon".

Sur sa façade orientale on peut voir plusieurs fenêtres fictivement ouvertes et leur occupants regarder la rue.

Designed by Jean-Pierre Franque, it "constitutes an excellent reminiscence of the Petit Trianon castle".
