Located in the plains at the foot of the Vaucluse Mountains, Pernes-les-Fontaines is a lively Provencal village with a traditional character. The fortified village has a rich heritage offering many historic monuments worth seeing. Enter through one of the impressive medieval gateways, walk along the narrow cobbled streets visiting the over 40 public fountains which have given the town its name, admire the magnificent manor houses and castles dotted throughout the village, feast your eyes on the extremely rare medieval frescoes at the 12th-century Tour Ferrande tower, or visit La Maison du Costume Comtadin, the Costume Museum exhibiting local costumes and accessories from the 19th century. The Provencal market takes place every Saturday, and the 'brocante' flea market is on Wednesdays. Pernes-les-Fontaines is ideally located between the towns of Carpentras and L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and Avignon is only 25 km away.
