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.
