175208 Vorbourg           Discovered 2005 Apr. 1 by M. Ory at Vicques.
In the twelfth century the knights of Telsperg erected two castles in Vorbourg to control the road leading to Basel. The ruins of the higher castle and a square tower, with the famous chapel "Notre-Dame", are still visible today. Vorbourg is well known to the inhabitants of Delemont, of whom the discoverer is one.
