The "Garlande Hôtel Avignon Centre" is an 18th century building with a rather special interior architecture. There were originally three independent houses, one of which probably dates from the 16th or 17th century. Over time and successive acquisitions, these three houses ended up belonging to only one owner at the end of the XIXth century. As early as the 1930s, this building was already home to a hotel: the Hotel Saint-Didier, named after the church and the square, which are just a few steps away. At the end of the Second World War, it was used as a private house, then as a student residence. In the 1970s, it became a hotel under the name of the Hotel Dévéria, the street name of the street before being renamed “rue Galante”. The hotel again changed its name in the 1980s to become the "Garlande Hôtel Avignon Centre".
The name of the street is coming from the “Provençal” (a local dialect) word "Garlando", meaning garland. In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, goldsmiths were installed there and made jewelry in the shape of a garland of flowers, jewels traditionally worn during wedding ceremonies.
