L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue

Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is one of the must-see places of Provence. Colorful with green and water, this island city is nicknamed “Comtadine Venice”. Located at the foot of the Vaucluse plateau, the town is crossed by several canals fed by the Sorgue. Let yourself be guided by its freshness to the watershed, site where the river splits into two arms for the first time after taking its source at Fontaine de Vaucluse, 7km upstream.

You will appreciate all the charm of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue as you stroll through its narrow streets and along the canals, you will discover the paddle wheels dressed in moss by time.

In the heart of the city, come and visit the beautiful Notre-Dame des Anges collegiate church with its baroque interior, dating from the 17th century.

Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is now internationally renowned thanks to the antique fairs which take place twice a year and the numerous antique shops, open all year round from Friday to Monday.

On Thursdays and Sundays, savor the authentic and colorful Provencal market which stretches along the canals and in the city, one of the largest and oldest markets in Provence.
