Montgenèvre

Also known as the Fort of the Clouds.
Culminating at 3131 metres above sea level, it is one of the highest in Europe.

Built between 1900 and 1914, the summit had to be mined to lower its height by 6 metres. It took no less than 300 civilian workers and miners to build this technical and human feat, consisting of 8 turrets, which form the visible part of the building, which is mainly underground.

Today, it is a hiking destination, from which it is still possible to observe the remains.
