La Sorgue, a Wild River

La Sorgue, this majestic river runs through these beautiful villages of Provence: Fontaine de Vaucluse, L'Isle sur la Sorgue, Le Thor and Châteauneuf de Gadagne.

La Sorgue holds a primary place in the life and history of this territory, it makes it its richness and originality.

La Sorgue presents an extraordinary flow in times of flood. The water that leaped at Fontaine-de-Vaucluse comes from the infiltration of rainwater from the Albion Plateau, the Montagne de Lure and the melting of snow from the south of Mont Ventoux.

A few kilometers further, in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, the Sorgue is divided in two arms as if to hug its Isle.

In the alleys, she sneaks and plays with the wheels... Listen to the lapping of the water that is worth this ancient fishing village the nickname “Venice Comtadine”.

All these arms meet at the Pont des Cinq Eaux, the almost reconstituted Sorgue will continue its course towards Le Thor to go entwining Notre-Dame-du-Lac, the beautiful Romance...
