Besancon Tourist information:
Besancon is a lively bustling city with an interesting mixture of old and new. It is situated in the lovely valley of the Doubs river. On the north bank is the modern commercial and residential section of the town, with good shops and hotels. In the 19th Century, the city became the centre of France's clock and watch-making, and there's a fascinating 19th Century astronomical clock with 30,000 parts and 73 dials indicating 122 types of information such as seasons, the time in 16 different places in the world, tides, daylight, times for sunrise and sunset, and drives 20 automatons. The town is dominated by its spectacular citadel, built in 1674. The country-side of the Doubs region is beautiful and peaceful, and Besancon is a good spot from which to explore it.
