Mont Chaberton, Montgenevre

(4.8/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
A permanent artillery battery built in 1910 by the Italian Army, Mont Chaberton, is on a mountain which is 3,131 m (10,272 ft) high. After World War II, it came into the French territory. Between 1898 and 1910 Italian troops built this artillery battery on the summit that pointed towards France. The fort was dubbed the "Fort of the Clouds" and mounted eight 149mm guns in individual masonry turrets, which were often hidden in the clouds. You can still see the Shell craters that are visible from the air on the slopes to the west of the mountain.

  • Unique historical site in Italy (he was Italian until 1947) and built by Italian military engineers. Europe's highest military Fort. Arrived at the Summit after the three-hour walk from Montgenèvre has satisfied the sight and can visit the remains of the Fort. Rise a little steep but affordable. Recommended!!

  • A must walk through a good path for the departure and an easy trail until the sommet.prevoir one held adapted because there is often the wind from the col and the Summit is particularly exposed to the gusts. Amazing places for its beautiful histoire.paysages.
