Fontaine de Vaucluse is at the heart of tourism in the Vaucluse region. The village gives off a kind of magic (and mystery) that is owed to its famous spring. When water levels are high it is an impressively beautiful sight. The emerald green waters overflow into a waterfall that runs down into the bed of the Sorgue river (canoe enthusiasts get ready!). The department get its name from this place: Vallis Clausa… The Closed Valley… (Vaucluse).
