Mont Chaberton, Montgenevre
(4.8/5 based on 25+ 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. Put Mont Chaberton and other Montgenevre attractions into our Montgenevre tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful. A walk of two hours and 45 to get to this open air museum. on the history of the Fort did not waste a words because we would need a book; I'm just saying that it's really worth trying. .. Despite its 3100 and passes meters above sea level would say the walk must be proven (there were also several children). Unique view.

  • This hike is the most beautiful in my eyes. Why? The landscape is magnificent. The climb is physical. The history of the towers destroyed by mortars is sublime. What kind of work... I loved this site. really. I dream to go back. August 2015 and not September...
