L'Isle-sur-le-Doubs is a commune in the Doubs department in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region in eastern France.

Geography[edit]

The communes is situated 65 km (40 mi) northeast of Besançon and 25 km (16 mi) southwest of Montbéliard. The town lies at the foot of a cliff, so expansion took place on the other side of the Doubs River.

History[edit]

The town of l'Isle-sur-le-Doubs was formed from the merging of the villages of Fusnans, Carnans, and Uxelles. It belonged originally to the abbey of Les Trois Rois, and was then ceded to the Count of Neufchâtel, who built his castle there in 1230, only the foundations of which remain.
