Cité des Chalons


The "smallest town in France" has a cultural and historical wealth that makes it a must-see. A small town of character, classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France, it is an ancient fortified town. The ruins of the 13th-16th century castle, the 13th-15th century church, the Tour de l'Horloge and the Porte de Nods are the main picturesque points.

Also known as the "City of Chalons", the small town of Nozeroy can be visited in different ways. A discovery trail, with six illustrated panels, deals with themes as diverse as history, religion, agriculture, water in the Nozeroy region, and the exploitation of the Molpré yellow stone.

With your smartphone alone, you will be able to wander freely throughout the year while discovering the richness of the local heritage thanks to the twelve QR codes to be flashed, scattered throughout the town.

For budding investigators, two booklets (8-10 years and 11-13 years) allowing you to learn about the history of Nozeroy in a fun way through games and riddles, are on sale at the Maison du Tourisme, at the Nozeroy office.

And, if you want something more complete, a dramatised visit presented by the "Va-t'en-Rêves" theatre group and a guided historical tour by the "Vieux Amis du Pays de Nozeroy" association are organised every week during the summer.

The Calvaries of the Country: about forty calvaries located in the different communes of the country are spread along an itinerary. Each calvary has its own history and some are worth a visit, such as the one at Molpré. Precise information is given in the church of Nozeroy
