The romanesque chapel Notre-Dame of Aubune of 12th 17th 18th centuries.

A first chapel existed in the 5th or 6th century.
The prieuré of Notre-Dame of aubune is quoted in the XIIth century. The chapel was built from 1125 till 1150, then from 1170 till 1180, before being enlarged in the XVIIth century, and strengthening in the XVIIIth century.

The village, sheltered from the Mistral by Les Dentelles de Montmirail which are special mountains of the massif of Baronnies, owes name to the numerous caves which surround it, called beaumes. The word "Venice" comes from Comtat Venaissin, which is a historic region of the department of Vaucluse, between the Rhône, the Mount Ventoux and Durance, including the cities of Cavaillon, Carpentras, Vaison-la-Romaine.

BEAUMES-DE-VENISE is a French commune, located in the Vaucluse department of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur area, populated by 2223 Balméens in 2005, spread over 18.9 square kilometers, or 117.7 inhabitants per km².

The village was mentioned in 993.

In addition to olive and fruit trees, between "Les Dentelles de Montmirail" and Mont Ventoux, 1200 hectares of vineyards produce the "Muscat de Beaumes de Venise", wines of the Côtes du Rhone and Côtes du Ventoux.

By anecdote, it is in the Gendarmerie of Beaumes-de-Venise that were made 8 episodes of the television series "Une Femme d'honneur", a woman of honor, in 2001 and 2002.
