St Ursanne, Switzerland

Medieval bridge over river to old town houses

Saint Ursanne is exactly the sort of place I'd love to visit. It's in the Jura canton of Switzerland, almost in France.  Although France also has a Jura département, it is Doubs which adjoins the Jura Canton.

St  Ursanne is a medieval village with an old abbey and outstanding cloister.  The houses date from the 14th to 16th century.  It owes its name to an Irish monk, Ursan, whose hermitage can be visited if you wish to climb the 180 steps up to its cave.
