Baume-les-Messieurs - Tourism in the Jura

Nestling in the heart of a magnificent cirque, the village of Baume-les-Messieurs, listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France, takes advantage of an exceptional natural setting. The famous high cliffs can be contemplated off several viewpoints dominating the roofs of Baume-les-Messieurs. In the village itself, you mustn't miss the Benedictine abbey founded in the 6th century. Its Romanesque abbey church is unusual in that it is home to a magnificent Flemish altarpiece dating from the 16th century.
