Provence has always been a shelter for Jewish communities. The Jewish presence in the area goes back to the era of the Roman Gaul, following exodus from the Holy Land. Explore some of the key sites of a fascinating history in southern France.
Head to Carpentras and visit one of France's oldest synagogues, built in 1367. See the baths and pools designed for ritual cleansing, including an early pool that dates back to the 14th century. Your next stop is Cavaillon, a commune with pretty little streets and squares decorated with flowers. Hear about the city's Jewish heritage while admiring one of the most charming synagogues of Europe.
Head to L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue to explore the old Jewish cemetery before reaching Avignon. The Jewish community has been part of Avignon for several centuries. Stroll the the former Jewish Quarter and gaze at a remarkable synagogue that dates back to the 19th century. Your last stop is Aix-en-Provence, which contains street signs that are several generations old in its Jewish Quarter.
