Montbéliard cows provide the milk that is essential for the production of Comté, one of the first cheeses to be awarded AOC, protected status and a product that has brought the Jura department a good part of its fame. Poligny has rightly proclaimed itself as the world capital of Comté. The town will be welcoming the Tour de France for the first time, but has already hosted three stages of the Tour du Jura in the past decade or so.

  • Stage town for the 1st time
  • Municipality in Jura (39)
  • Population: 4,200 (Polinois and Polinoises), 260,000 in Jura
