Carpentras sortie visiter vaucluse village

30 min from Villa Sainte Anne

In the heart of the Vaucluse region and capital of the Comtat Venaissin, Carpentras is famous for its synagogue. Dating from the 13th century, it is the oldest synagogue in France still in use.

Carpentras is also famous for its market. It takes place every Friday morning on Place de l’horloge. In summer, fruit and vegetables fill the stalls. Carpentras is the strawberry capital: a must-try! And in winter, Carpentras offers a more discreet market: that of truffles, harvested on the slopes of Mont Ventoux.

If you love history, culture and art, Carpentras has several interesting museums to visit, including the Musée Sobirats and the Bibliothèque Inguimbertine.

To explore the architecture of Carpentras, it’s a good idea to visit the Cathedral Saint Siffrein. Don’t miss the Hôtel Dieu, the former Palais Épiscopal (now a courthouse), the Passage Boyer and the Porte d’Orange (the last vestige of the city’s ramparts). And don’t forget the aqueduct to the north of the city.

For sports enthusiasts, the recently opened via Venaissia allows you to reach the town of Orange on foot, inline skates or by bike, via Loriol, Sarrians and Jonquières.

And if your stroll through downtown Carpentras leads you to the Jouvaud patisserie, don’t hesitate to take a break and indulge in their delicious confectionery (candied fruits, berlingots) or chocolates.
