Start of the walk: Town Hall in the village.


The walk starts at the Town Hall. It is possible to start by visiting Gigot Fountain and Ferrande Tower, where you will find 13th century frescoes (guided tour with the Tourist Office).

Then, stroll along the Nesque to Porte Notre-Dame, Notre-Dame de Nazareth Church and the magnificent covered market next to Cormoran Fountain.

Be brave and climb up to the top of the Tour de l'Horloge, the former castle of the Counts of Toulouse, and admire the view over the Comtat Venaissin Plain, Mont Ventoux and the Vaucluse Mountains.

On the way down, look out for Font de la Luna, and return to the Town Hall, past the wash house and Ange Fountain.

Many other fountains are more hidden but are well worth a visit, so be sure to try and find them. There is a total of 40 fountains in the village! Enjoy your walk!
