La Fontaine de Vaucluse, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur

4.1
#11 of 47 in Nature in Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
Geologic Formation Historic Walking Area
See a river emerge from the ground at La Fontaine de Vaucluse, part of a medieval village in Plateau de Vaucluse, 25 km (15.5 mi) east of Avignon. At the base of high, rocky cliffs, a deep pool of water is actually the source of the Sorgue river that springs from the land beneath it. Several meters away, watch those still waters turn into whitewater rapids that crash down over black rocks. La Fontaine de Vaucluse is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Fontaine de Vaucluse Edition.
