  • The Museum is located in an old beautiful house where once lived the great Italian poet. The collection covers ancient editions of the work of Petrarch and his followers, as well as drawings and prints Laura, beloved poet. Very memorable place.

  • If you come to fountain of Vaucluse, do not stroll along the Sorgue but do not miss to visit the Museum-Library Francis Petrarch. One of the pioneers of humanism and father of the Italian language with Dante and Boccaccio. The poet, who had a passionate love for the beautiful Laure de Noves, hanitait here. Beyond a remarkable library, we can find any iconography related to Petrarch and the first books printed in his works, subsequent to his death. A remarkable cultural place. Do not miss also the lovely garden of the House along the Sorgue. We understand why the poet loved the site (in addition to his love for Laura)
