The 'city of the seven rivers' as Bédarrides is known, is a beautifully refreshing venue during the summer months and is particularly reputed with fishermen. The river Ouvèze is ideal for swimmers whilst a health trail is set out on its banks. The listed church of Saint-Laurent, the gates of Sainte-Croix and of Le Comtat Venaissin, the Place du 4 septembre, the Romanesque bridge with its three arches are all attractive reminders of the village's rich history.
