Major spring events in Provence

Are you looking for new colours and scents? In the spring, nature becomes generous once more and the people of Provence welcome this beautiful season enthusiastically. The markets celebrate the strawberries from Carpentras and the asparagus from Mormoiron. For the traditional Provençal festivals, people wear beautiful folk costumes and they dance to the sound of the tambourines.
And they admire the rebirth of nature, particularly at the Palace of the Popes in Avignon during the Alterarosa rose festival, where they visit one of the remarkable gardens which open their gates for the "Open Garden" days.
