Things to see and do

Built in the 18th century, the Saint-Pierre church is the work of Paul Rochas, an architect from Avignon. Installed in the heights of the town, it faces the Mont Ventoux and reveals a facade of Jesuit style. You can also discover the Notre-Dame-du-Moustier chapel in the Romanesque style, the Sainte-Croix chapel in Mont Ventoux, or the Baux church.

Located three kilometers from Bédoin, the chapel of the Madeleine dates from the eleventh century. In Romanesque style, it takes place on the grounds of the castle of the Madelene and can be visited on certain days of the week.

The communal forest is the home of many marked hiking trails, as is the nearby Mount Ventoux. In winter, skiing can be practiced, while in summer mountain biking or climbing are favored.
