Vaison is proud of the vestiges from its past. By requesting that the suffix "la-Romaine" (the Roman) be added to its name in 1924, the town affirmed its links with the past, obscuring to some extent its rich medieval heritage. The jump from Vaison-la-Romaine to Vaison-la-Romane ("the Romanesque") requires no more than the crossing of a bridge over the Ouvèze, which links the lower town from Antiquity with the upper medieval town. Another monument spanning the millennia is the theatre, which is now the setting for concerts and festivals.
