This was my husband's favorite area in Avignon. It was a lovely and quiet long street to wander and look at the canal and the water wheels.

A lovely street with water wheels. These wheels used to provide rotating power for the local Industry at the time. We visited Isle sur la Sorgue and admired both the place and the water wheels.

Not too sure why this is suggested as a "must do" as there really was nothing to see and no where was open for a drink!

This is apparently one of the oldest streets in Avignon. A canal (the River Sorgue) runs along one side with old wooden wheels in it. There is an excellent little restaurant, L'Ubu, halfway along the street.

Can visit as part of one of 3 self guided walks around Avignon. Lots of cafes and bars and water wheels that are relics of the old dyes industry. Self guided walking maps from tourist information.

Avignon within the city walls is beautiful, walkable and this is one of it`s nicest streets. It`s quiet and pedestrian only. The canal, buildings and water wheels are well preserved. It`s nice place to go for a walk.
