A Few Words on the History of the Comtat Venaissin

What is the Comtat Venaissin where our Association is established?

The "Comtat Venaissin" is mainly a historical denomination and corresponds to the pontifical state in the 14th century, not including the city of Avignon. With the revolution, this state disappeared and the Comtat Venaissin became a name for a geographical region around Carpentras without its limits being precisely defined. At the beginning of the 20th century, in 2002, the "Community of Communes Ventoux - Comtat Venaissin", named "La CoVe" was created and thus, Comtat Venaissin again became a well-defined administrative and geographical entity, under another name.
