At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A church devoted to Saint Peter.

The Saint Pierre church in Avignon was built in the 8th century to house the graves of the first bishops of Avignon. Devastated by Saracens, the ruins were uncovered in the 10th century by Foulques II. In 1358, it was rebuilt thanks to the generosity of Cardinal Pierre des Près (Peter of Pratis) and transformed into a collegiate church by Pope Innocent VI. Never finished, the building underwent nearly complete renovations at the end of the 15th century, when a square was installed and work on the bell tower began. At the start of the Revolution, the Saint Pierre church hosted the gatherings of the districts before returning to worshiping in 1795.
