The Huguenots trail pays tribute to these fugitives from Celigny to Vaumarcus via La Côte and the Pied du Jura.
In 1685, Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes and caused one of the great exoduses in our history. Nearly 200,000 hugenots fled France. Today, the Sentier des Huguenots pays tribute to these fugitives by offering a route from Poët- Laval (drôme, France) to Bad Karlshafen (Germany) that enters Switzerland in Geneva.
There is reason to believe that some of these walkers passed through La Côte and the Pied du Jura, crossing the villages of our region and sometimes settling there.
