La Synagogue

Reviewed By Mike082 - London, United Kingdom

A big disappointment. Went to Carpentras specially from Avignon, just to see the Synagogue. It's listed as open Monday to Friday and unlike other sites there, it does not show closed on Fete days. However the Tourist Office insisted it was closed because of Ascension day. Didn't think Jews kept this Christian festival! Anyway it was a wasted visit.

Confiserie du Mont Ventoux, berlingot

Reviewed By Sometimescape - Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur, France

When my travellers ask me what to buy for souvenirs back home, I always recommend these amazing candies made by hands and used only natural flavours to make them so tasty. Besides the candies in the shop you can also buy some local produce such as "fruit confit" a sugar coated and natural boiled fruit.

Marche du Vendredi Matin

Reviewed By canadiancraftsman - London, Canada

But I can imagine it would be outstanding during the summer season. There were a few truffle vendors there as well.
Remember to tour through the entire town and not just stay in the pl Charles De Gaulle. There are alot more stands scattered through the streets and you may find better offers outside.

Cathedrale St-Siffrein

Reviewed By Eli B - Sydney, Australia

The Cathedral is a beautiful example of romanesque architecture,characterised by unified space and strong wall space. It is the biggest church in the dioceses,with anave that has six ribbed bays.
The decoration inside testifies to the great artistic fervor of the papal presence in the area. So here is what is great about this edifice : 1) painted panels of the Crowning of the Virgin
2) 15th century stained glass windows
3) precious marble Genoan alter pieces
4) gilted wood sculptures
5) outstanding wrought iron work
6) countless paintings
Tip....take a close look at the Jewish gate with work done by Blaise LecuyerIts. Its beautiful

Carpentras market

Reviewed By GreyGrandad - Wolverhampton, United Kingdom

Friday is the day for the market. The main problem is finding a parking space, so best to arrive early. Free parking at Coulée Verte or La Roseraie.
This is a market on a grand scale that takes over most of the centre of Carpentras. You need time to wander and take it all in. If you have the energy, do it twice - you'll always find that someone has the item you bought for less than you paid.
Apart from good quality fruit and veg, including juicy fresh figs,
you can buy excellent local honey, soap, lavender, perfumes and pottery.
There are olives, tapenades, different varieties of garlic, olive oils, Provençal materials as well as the usual items you might find in a well stocked market.
If you're feeling peckish there are numerous stalls offering cooked food : pizzas, chicken roasting on spits with potatoes underneath, various Provençal specialities and, this year, there was even a Japanese food stall.
Good street musicians are often to be found in the market.
There's a lot more to say - better you just go.

Centre Ancien

Reviewed By Kevin A - Perth, Australia

I spent two nights here and although my initial impression was of a rather down at heel old town I must say that walking around over two days the place grew on me. I think it has lots of history but isn't very good at presenting it
