The Joux castle - Tourism in the Doubs

Overlooking the valley linking France to Switzerland (the Cluse de Pontarlier), Joux castle – with its keep, towers, drawbridges, surrounding walls and fort – offers fantastic evidence of the way fortifications have developed over the years. Built in the 11th century, then modified by Vauban in the 17th century, visitors will discover 10 centuries of history there.

The Old Weapons museum, located in the ancient keep of the castle, exhibits over 650 items!
