Its colors are nature's green and the bright reflection of the water shining from the several canals running through its center. There are little bridges to cross and great wheels to look at with mossy blades turning in the river.
L'Isle sur la Sorgue hosts antiques' fairs at Easter and over the August 15th holiday that have given a worldwide reputation to this small city. More than 300 antique dealers and second hand dealers gather here to show their treasures to customers from all over the world.
