The history of Étang de la Bonde

Lord Fouquet d'Agoult, Baron of Sault, chamberlain to King René d'Anjou, Count of Provence, decided to create a water reserve for the Château de La Tour d'Aigues and had an aqueduct built in the 15th century. The resulting pond was the feeder for an irrigation network that supplied the entire Aigues valley, contributing to the expansion of agriculture.
