Geography[edit]

The commune lies 44 km (27 mi) south of Besançon on the central plateau of the Jura mountains. Nans is known for its spectacular geological features, including the Source de Lison, the Via Ferrata and the Grotte Serazin. The artist Gustave Courbet was active in the area and his depiction of the Grotte Serazin hangs in the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California. Nans is also home to the historical Tillandiarie, a 16th Century water-powered workshop.
