Fontaine de Vaucluse

Fontaine de Vaucluse

Located 30 km from Sampado Village, the Fontaine-de-Vaucluse is one of the most visited sites in Vaucluse and all the more so during the summer period.

 

By its color, but also by its flow, this source of the Sorgue generally attracts the crowd: a source which springs from a cliff 230 m high. You can therefore bask on the edges of this gigantic fountain with emerald-green waters.

 

You can also treat yourself to a stop at the library museum dedicated to François Pétrarque to discover the Italian literature of the latter. Many famous people such as the King of Naples, Philippe de Cabassole, Julien de la Rovere or Hippolite de Medici have landed at the Fontaine de Vaucluse in order to understand the exact origin of the Fountain.

 

This tourist town has surrounded itself in recent years with various museums such as the eco-museum of santons, the Call of Freedom museum also called the Resistance Museum or the Vallis Clausa eco-museum on paper mills.

 

Discover this small sunny village where this fountain resonates and which lends itself for a Sunday stroll with the family in order to recharge your batteries on the terrace of a restaurant or to enjoy an ice cream to be able to reach the source of the Sorgue. .
