Walking and being moved by stone and green treasures is the promise of this Jura Escape. From north to south, focus on some natural treasures:


Heritage and cultural sites to discover along the Jura Escape

Dole , the starting point (or arrival point) of your Jurassic getaway is full of historical monuments, witnesses of its glorious status as Comtoise capital until 1678. It is also in Dole that the famous scientist Louis Pasteur was born.

Arc-et-Senans and Salins-les-Bains , salt cities par excellence, are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Head for the vineyards with Arbois, Château-Chalon or Baume-les-Messieurs : incredibly charming villages, nestled in the recesses or perched on a rocky outcrop.

Comes Lons-le-Saunier , homeland of two revolutionary stars: Rouget-de-Lisle and La Vache qui Rit ®.
