    No sooner have you arrived in Porrentruy than you will leave the town again. Because that is the plan: first discover the hidden hinterland and then the botanical garden of this medieval capital of the Ajoie. You quickly leave the industrial zone behind you, enter the valley of the Allaine and follow the meandering river on a beautiful forest edge path lined with linden trees. Courchavon appears, its late medieval bell tower and the Saint-Jean church, which houses a 13th-century statue of Our Lady. Apple trees are blooming. France is near. The path climbs up through a valley, leads out of the forest, and the vastness that opens up in front of you is overwhelming: what a view! This is the place for a picnic break before entering the hamlet of Mormont with its old orchards - and perhaps stopping at the only restaurant on the way. After fields and arable land, the route dips into the forest, although you have to be careful here because the trail markings are a bit confusing. Leaving the forest is again a special experience: Porrentruy is at your feet, the path leads straight to the castle at Waldegg, and the old town is entered through the Porte de France. It is wonderful to linger in the quiet park of the former Jesuit college. It was transformed into a botanical garden in 1793 and houses one of the most important cactus collections in Switzerland. The avenue of rose bushes and the plant system in the strictly arranged beds are inspiring. Don't miss the Jura garden and the hundred-year-old giant enthuja!
