In the heart of the Comtat Venaissin (listed as an 'Area of Arts and History'), Monteux is a vibrant town which organises each year a number of exciting events: the Festivities of Saint-Jean, the Music festival of Saint-Jean, the Autumn fair, a medieval festival... Monteux is also the hometown of the firm Lacroix-Ruggieri, one of the world's leading designers of pyrotechnic shows, and every year it organises a spectacular firework display. History lovers can visit the Tour Clémentine, a 28 metre-high tower (which owes its name to Pope Clément V who stayed in Monteux), the town gates of the Porte d’Avignon, the Porte Neuve, the church of Notre Dame de Nazareth…
