Pont-de-Roide-Vermondans (before 2014: Pont-de-Roide)[2] is a commune in the Doubs département in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region in eastern France.

Geography[edit]

The town is at the heart of the Pays de Lomont, 17 km (11 mi) from Montbéliard at the confluence of the Doubs River, the Ranceuse, and the Roide; it is therefore located at the crossroad of different valleys. On the east end of the town are high cliffs known as les Roches, leading to a plateau near the Franco-Swiss border.

History[edit]

In 1973, the adjacent village of Vermondans joined the commune of Pont-de-Roide. In 2013 the fusion was made official by the creation of a new commune: Pont-de-Roide - Vermondans.
