Le Locle
The Essential
This small town, huddled at the back of a valley and linked to the neighbouring Franche-Comté by the Roches Pass, owes its prosperity to clock making. This began in the 18C, when a young goldsmith called Daniel Jean-Richard settled in the area. Like La Chaux-de-Fonds, since 2009 it is a Unesco World Heritage List for its culture and clock-making urban industry.
