4.5
#6 of 11 in Nature in Valle d'Aosta
The Little St Bernard Pass is a mountain pass in the Alps on the France–Italy border. Its saddle is at 2188 metres above sea level. It is located between Savoie, France, and Aosta Valley, Italy, to the south of the Mont Blanc Massif, exactly on the main alpine watershed. There is also a Great St. Bernard Pass and a San Bernardino Pass.The road across this pass is usually open from May to October. For current road status see Etat des principaux cols routiers francais.At the summit, the road cuts through a stone circle measuring 72 m in diameter. A standing stone once stood in the middle. From coin finds this is believed to date from the Iron Age, possibly being a ceremonial site of the Tarentaisian culture . The stone circle was partly restored in the 19th century.

  • The road is pleasant, with twists and turns. The asphalt of the ascent of the Hill is new, in excellent condition. The mountain scenery is beautiful

  • Great views when the evening clouds fade and leave Mont Blanc and its edges appear before us. In a motorhome, we slept in the face of this sumptuous decoration above the Lake before a chairlift.

  • Lovely day, magical place. Lake surrounded by majestic mountains. Feels like walking on pillows. The Earth is water soup. Nearby there is the border with France.
