The Center is open throughout the year from noon until 6:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. During the July Festival of Avignon, we will be open every day from noon until 7:00 and, for shows, fron 7:00 p.m. until 10:30.

Why should one visit the Centre Européen de Poésie d’Avignon?

We collect and preserve there an exceptional group of holographic manuscripts by contemporary poets, both French and foreign. Currently about 300 of these are regularly displayed.

 We have a rare collection of American poets of the 1950's and 1960's as well as works of poets who also work in other beaux arts. Our goal is not only to present famous artists but also to showcase young unknowns.
