Nº 2 Trans Swiss Trail

After the lovely old town of Porrentruy, across fields to the forested Jura chain. Then a descent through deep folds carved in the karst rocks by the River Doubs. St-Ursanne is a bijou. The breath of another age permeates the monastery cloister.

Nestled in an unspoilt natural setting on the banks of the Doubs river, the small medieval town of Saint-Ursanne has preserved its treasures.
