Pouilley-les-Vignes is a commune in the Doubs department in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region in eastern France.

Geography[edit]

The commune lies 8 km (5.0 mi) northwest of Besançon. Fortifications were built on the surrounding heights by Jean de Chalon, Count of Burgundy in the 10th century. The only remains are the Porte d'Orange, a gate carved from the rock, and the Baraque des Enragés, a subterranean entrance to the fort.
