Orange has established a Sister City relationship with its French homonym in 1979.
Orange is a small but beautiful city of the region Provence in the south of France. It was founded in 35 B.C by a Gallic legion of veterans. Orange is a crossroads of civilizations during the medieval age, since it is located between Spain and Italy. The famous antic monuments (the theater and the triumph arch) are highlighted by the rolling countryside, making of Orange a very majestic village. Orange also participates in the prestige of French gastronomy, since its wine competition is the most important one in the region, as well as its production of truffles.
