Capital of the Jura wines, the town of Arbois boasts a beautiful architectural heritage. Its houses sitting along the picturesque Cuisance river are very charming. The Saint-Just church dating from the 12th and 13th centuries boasts a 60-metre high bell tower. The latter is accessible in July and August, offering then a magnificent view of the vineyards and the roofs of the city.
Open to visitors, the Pasteur House, in which Louis Pasteur used to stay regularly, is home to personal souvenirs, objects, devices and instruments of the famous scientist.
Also not to be missed, the Vineyards and Wine museum situated in a part of the Pécauld castle, introduces visitors to the history and traditions related to wine-growing, as well as presenting the region's grape varieties and wine-making methods.
