In addition to these natural beauty sites, the region of Avignon also offers the opportunity to go back in time and visit numerous monuments : the Gallo-Roman remains in Orange, Vaison, Arles, Nîmes and the Pont du Gard, the Roman and Gothic churches and abbeys, the chateaux of Ansouis, Lourmarin, Barbentane. 

Without forgetting the numerous museums of art and popular tradition, paintings and other collections, the L’Harmas museum, home of Jean Henri Fabre, the bakery museum in Bonnieux, the lavender museum in Coustellet or the wine growers museum in Châteauneuf du pape...
