    Description

    Rue des Teinturiers (literally ‘Street of the Dyers’) is undoubtedly one of Avignon’s most picturesque streets. It follows the course of a tributary of the Sorgue from Fontaine de Vaucluse, and once supplied the moat of the old 19th century ramparts.The street retains traces of 17th-century silk and 18th-century cotton manufacturing. The water was used to supply the needs of the so-called ‘Indian’ mills that were especially prosperous at the time, and which were revived in the 19th century. The driving force of the wheels in the Sorgue was used to operate the machinery of the silk mills. The clear waters of Fontaine de Vaucluse bestowed a perfect sheen and brightness on the dyed fabric. The machines were set up in the houses on both sides of the street, which boasted 23 water wheels in 1817 as well as a large number of wash houses (most of which were set up by the ‘Indian’ cloth-makers). On the corner of Rue Guillaume Puy is the Gothic-style house known as the ‘Maison du IV de Chiffre’. The meaning of the IV symbol remains a mystery. The house, which is crenellated, is flanked by two turrets adorned with gargoyles depicting mythical animals. It is one of the last Gothic houses in Avignon.
