Mountain Nature / Park
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.

  • Place of rare beauty. Recommended to all. Requires no special hiking experience.

  • Focal point of passage, now the border no longer exists but "sympathetically" they accommodated a gendarme in plastic! Souvenir shops filled with Chinoiserie are to avoid (or perhaps for children). Green meadows and rocks surround in a scope where the main course is the nature! Crossing the border by singing la Marseillaise to the statue of San Bernardo and then return home to the tune of brothers of Italy ... priceless! You live now and if it stirs in you an emotion. Please vote!

  • Definitely oasis of peace with a beautiful view of animal life. Definitely worth going there.
