Musee Lapidaire, Avignon

I left the sun behind in Aix with a short train journey to Avignon, the city of popes. I visited the Musee Lapidaire, which exhibits Greek, Roman, Etruscan, and Gaulish, sculpture, glassware, and ceramics. The museum, part of the Musee Calvert, is located in a 16th century Jesuit church. It is an excellent example of building reuse.
