This was my husband's favorite area in Avignon. It was a lovely and quiet long street to wander and look at the canal and the water wheels.

A lovely street with water wheels. These wheels used to provide rotating power for the local Industry at the time. We visited Isle sur la Sorgue and admired both the place and the water wheels.
