I heard that the water in the canal is ice cold. So what I've been told and is very clear too. I think that this is their signature attraction for this place. A lot of selfies and pictures are being taken.

The circuit is purely magnificent and provides great photo ops. In addition there are a number of great antique / second hand shops in the general area which are worthy of viewing. Wished we had more time to explore further.

The waterwheel circuit in L’Isle sur la Sorgue is something you just don’t fine everywhere. Consider, L’Isle actually is built on a series of islands in the Sorgue, and on older times the power of flowing water was used to power various industries. Many of...More
