Orange is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. It is located about 21km north of Avignon. It has a primarily agricultural economy.HistoryRoman Orange was founded in 35 BC by veterans of the Second legion as Arausio (after the local Celtic water god), or Colonia Julia Firma Secundanorum Arausio in full, "the Julian colony of Arausio established by the soldiers of the second legion." The name was originally unrelated to that of the orange fruit, but was later conflated with it (see Orange (word)).A previous Celtic settlement with that name existed in the same place and a major battle, which is generally known as the Battle of Arausio, had been fought in 105 BC between two Roman armies and the Cimbri and Teutones tribes.Arausio covered an area of some 170acres and was well endowed with civic monuments – as well as the theatre and arch, it had a monumental temple complex and a forum.
