Dole, France 3.7.1971

Dole is a small, elegant town in the Jura in east France where streets of 18th-century, neo-classical stone buildings surround the collegiate church of Notre-Dame which dominates the skyline.
Designated a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire (Town of Art and History), Dole is known as the birthplace of Louis Pasteur and for the buildings that use the local pink, white and black stone.
In the town square there is a cute little fountain of a child pouring water from a pitcher (shown on the stamp and the FDC).

Thank you Merja.
