Situation géographique

Vellefaux est situé au bord de la N57, entre Vesoul et Besançon.

Histoire    

Vellefaux était situé sur une voie romaine dont il reste encore quelques traces.
Décimé par la peste en 1586, le village fut ensuite brûlé en 1636 par les Suédois.

Patrimoine et culture       

Une ancienne commanderie de templiers est encore visible à Vellefaux, ainsi qu'un château inscrit aux Monuments Historiques. Celui-ci a conservé quelques vestiges du château féodal, un corps de logis, une chapelle, un pigeonnier et des cheminées du XVIIIème siècle, ainsi que des vestiges de cheminée du XVIème siècle.
L'église de Vellefaux fut quant à elle rebâtie au XVIIIème siècle. On peut y voir du mobilier, des toiles et des statues du XVIIIème siècle.

Et n'oublions pas la petite chapelle de Sainte-Anne, autour de laquelle flotte une légende : une statuette de Sainte-Anne ayant été découverte dans un buisson, elle fut placée dans l'église, d'où elle s'échappa pour retourner dans son buisson. Une chapelle fut donc érigée à cet endroit. La statuette est encore visible à quelques centaines de mètres de la chapelle.
Tous les ans, aux alentours du 26 juillet, un pélerinage se rend à cette chapelle, point culminant de Vellefaux.

Tourisme       

Des sentiers pédestres jalonnés traversent la commune. Parmi eux, le sentier de la Chapelle Sainte-Anne, long de 7 km, mène à la chapelle d'où l'on a un beau point de vue sur la vallée de l'Ognon et les alentours de Vellefaux.

Informations diverses
