Architectural journey through the centuries

Architectural journey through the centuries

A Cluniac church, an 18th century castle, a gourmet cheese factory, a very special library... at first glance they have nothing in common. And yet these different sites have the particularity of a very singular architecture! Take your bike from Bière to L'Isle and you will discover these places steeped in history while enjoying the green landscapes of the Pied du Jura.
