Discover Fontaine de Vaucluse

The river La Sorgue has it source in the enchanting village of Fontaine de Vaucluse.


At the end of the deep, green gorge, at the foot of a great cliff carved by erosion, there springs the Sorgue de Vaucluse, the most beautiful river in the region.

With a total average flow of 630 million cubic metres per year, resulting from the emergence of a vast underground network, the spring is the most copiously productive in Europe, and one of the largest in the world, by volume of water.
