Saint-Ursanne — 7 nights

Saint-Ursanne is an old town and a former municipality of the district of Porrentruy in the canton of Jura, Switzerland which has preserved much of its medieval character. Visiting Etang de la Gruere and Fondation Pour le Cheval will get you outdoors. Shop till you drop at Fromages Spielhofer and O Vergers d'Ajoie. Get out of town with these interesting Saint-Ursanne side-trips: Eglise Catholique de Courtetelle (in Courtetelle), CHEZ Camille Bloch (in Courtelary) and Musee Espace Paysan Horloger (in Les Bois). There's lots more to do: make a trip to Pont St-Jean, steep yourself in history at Cloitre de St-Ursanne, look for gifts at Maison de la Tete de Moine, and admire the local landmark of Fontaine du Mai.

The Republic and Canton of the Jura, also known as the canton of Jura or canton Jura, is the newest of the 26 Swiss cantons, located in the northwestern part of Switzerland. The capital is Delémont. It shares borders with the canton of Basel-Landschaft, the canton of Bern, the canton of Neuchatel, the canton of Solothurn and the French régions of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté and Grand Est.HistoryThe King of Burgundy donated much of the land that today makes up canton Jura to the Bishop of Basel in 999. The area was a sovereign state within the Holy Roman Empire for more than 800 years. After the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648 the Jura had close ties with the Swiss Confederation. At the Congress of Vienna (1815), the Jura region became part of the canton of Bern. This act caused dissention. The Jura was French-speaking and Roman Catholic, whereas the canton of Bern was mostly German-speaking and Protestant.
