St-Ursanne

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

Pearl of the Jura

The Saint-Jean Népomucène bridge, renovated in 2016, and three gates are the only access ways to the old town. Lovingly called the “Pearl of the Jura”, the town boasts a remarkable historic heritage, including the collegiate church and cloister dating from the 12th and 13th centuries, respectively.

Numerous art galleries and antique shops line the town’s streets, and a medieval garden invites you to discover formerly used medicinal plants and vegetable patches. 

Activities in the heart of nature

An ideal starting point for a number of nature outings, the region offers a wide variety of activities such as hiking, biking, canoeing, fishing  or paragliding.
