Saint-Ursanne is a town in the north-west of Switzerland, close to France. It is sometimes called the “Pearl of the Jura” because the town is virtually unchanged since the 16th century. Monuments include the cloister, the churches and the city gates.
The town lies halfway between two other historic cities, Porrentruy and Delémont. Until the beginning of the 19th century, Porrentruy was seen as the capital of the Jura. In the 16th century it became the seat of the Bishops of Basel after the reformation drove them from their home city. That the 16th century was the highlight in the city’s history can still be witnessed in the impressive buildings of the time that still exist. The large Castle being the most important evidence of that. Delémont on the other hand is the present day capital of the Canton of Jura. It also has a medieval citycenter and a large castle were the prince-bishops of Basel lived.
Saint Ursanne lies on the banks of the Doubs River. As this river flows north-east towards Saint Ursanne it is actually for many kilometres the French-Swiss border. Curiously the Doubs makes a 180 degree turn near Saint Ursanne to return in a south-west direction. Near Saint Ursanne the river cuts around 400 metres into the surrounding landscape. The valley of the Doubs is sparsely populated and designated a national park. It is an ideal place for hiking trips or watersports.
