Carpentras
The Essential
Interesting
Languishing on the banks of the Auzon, at the foot of Mount Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail, Carpentras nestles amid the vineyards and orchards of the Comtat plain. The town is particularly busy on Friday mornings, when the market is held. Strawberries, truffles, wine, and home-made goodies, such as boiled sweets and candied fruits make your visit a gourmet experience. Its monuments and mansions, which reveal the talents of yesterday's craftsmen, endow the city with a certain grandeur.
