The Jesuit novitiate is a building built in Avignon in the Comtat Venaissin at the end of the sixteenth century, to serve as a house of religious formation for the novices of the Society of Jesus. When the Jesuits were expelled from France (1768), the building passed into other hands and became the property of the city of Avignon in 1852. In 1987, the premises were rehabilitated to allow the opening of a hotel and the organization of cultural or tourist activities. Since 1950, the buildings and the cloister have been listed as Historic Monuments.
