Faucogney-et-La-Mer, traditional old town in Bourgogne Franche-Comté
A picturesque town
Crossed by the Breuchin river, the village surprises visitors with its rich past. Strategic stronghold on the road to Lorraine, it was the seat of the Lords of Faucogney, who ruled over a large part of Haute-Saône. Besieged and pillaged by the french in 1674, it was the last fortified place to resist to Louis XIV in his conquest of the Franche-Comté.
A few kilometers away, the Saint-Martin church and its unusual graveyard, at 600 meters of altitude, has a commanding view on the valley
Guided tours on demand (1h30, 2€ per person, free for children under 12).
