riviere sorgue

Our river, the Sorgue

Celebrated by the greatest of poets, from Petrarch, who lived in Fontaine de Vaucluse, to René Char, the Sorgue is above all the symbol of harmony between men and the nature around them.

The banks, docks, wash houses, waterwheels, canals, and fishermen with their strange little crafts called Nego Chins set the stage for a wonderful everyday theatre.

Fishing, agriculture, wool and silk factories, local festivals and games: the course of activities in the Isle-sur-la-Sorgue has always been tied to that of the river.

Even today you can feel the influence of this intimate relationship.

In town, it's nice to walk along the docks, wandering as you follow the water. In the coolness of the relaxing greenery, you can give your mind over to daydreaming.

rivière la sorgueStreams, canals, and branches of the Sorgue wind their way through town, from Fontaine de Vaucluse, where the river has its source, to the water divide (Partage des Eaux), a dreamily poetic place, and a paradise for anglers, dreamers, and ducks...
