“Take a short detour to visit the ruins of an old fortification and admire the panorama from the summit.”— Lost Justpastnowhere
At the top of the summit, there are the impressive ruins of a large stone fortification built in the 1880's. The fortification was designed for 200 men with several gun emplacements to defend the valleys to the north (val Susa) and south (val Chisone) of Gran Costa from French invasion. The views from the fort are outstanding.
