The remains of a Cistercian monastery will take you back to bygone days and the wild vegetation along the lake shore will make this an unforgettable tour.Canton Jura is known for holding many treats for nature lovers. One of these is certainly the Lac de Lucelle. The route around this tiny lake is fascinating for its vegetation and the nostalgic charm radiated by it’s former monastery. You follow an easy path alongside sparkling waters. The route leads through a gently rolling, rural landscape. The untouched natural world has a pleasantly peaceful atmosphere. You pass lush greenery and ancient, shade-giving trees. After a piece of woodland, the hamlet of Lucelle appears, nestling serenely in the region. The tiny lake is lined with many species of plants and colourful shrubs. You catch a glimpse of individual houses on the opposite side of the lake, otherwise the idyll of a secluded nature reserve predominates. It’s well worth stopping in the village, where reminders of the former monastery include an impressive arched gateway, a fountain and a statue of St Bernard. You then take the path along the eastern side of the lake before the last section leads you over a wooden walkway through a belt of tall reeds.
