Despite deceptively lovely plane tree–lined streets, Malaucène can feel a bit drab, except in summer, when hikers and bikers arrive. Its blessing is geographical: on the saddle between Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles, it's well positioned for mountain sorties. Pope Clement V had a second home here in the 14th century: his legacy remains in the Gothic-Romanesque Église St-Michel & St-Pierre, constructed in 1309 on the site of an ancient temple. The tourist office stocks information on Mont Ventoux.
