The Comtat Venaissin was for centuries a hotly-contested region of Haute Provence, a separate political enclave which surrounded the Principality of Orange and the town of Avignon. For centuries a separate political entity, it came under Papal rule in 1274 and stubbornly resisted annexation by the French throne. Its capital Carpentras on the Auzon was in Greek and Roman times a lively market town, and later the favourite haunt of the Avignon popes. It is now famous for its truffle markets. L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is built on the islands formed by five branches of the river Sorgue, with lots of waterside restaurants and cafés, as well as several large antique waterwheels, still turning. The town is famous for its numerous antiques dealers and Sunday antiques market.
