Montchavin celebrates St. Agatha: Guided tour
Wander though the alleys of Montchavin listening to the amazing story of Saint Agatha, protector of the village.
Erected between 1817 and 1834 to counter potential threats from the French, the Esseillon barrier consisted of 5 forts built at intervals between the villages of Aussois and Avrieux.
Fort de la Platte
The fort is situated on a peak facing the Petit-Saint-Bernard mountain pass, right on the edge of the Haute Tarentaise.
Fort Charles Albert
Fort Charles Albert is one of the five Sardinian forts that make up the Esseillon barrier and bear the names of the sovereigns of the Savoy family.
Formerly at the heart of the Savoy defensive system, this imposing fort welcomes tourists and foodies.
Eight buildings follow one another on the side of the rock: places of life and combat, they still intimidate.
Fort de Ronce at the Lac du Mont-Cenis
From 1861, the priorities for Italy were unity and defence of the realm, which is why they built a number of forts on Mont-Cenis including the Ronce. Built at an altitude of 2286 m, it offers stunning views over the Mont-Cenis lake.
Château de Chantemerle
The château was rebuilt in the 13th C and adapted to take fire arms in the 14th C. It then fell into disrepair at the beginning of the 16th C, becoming national property during the Revolution. The local authorities bought it in 1988 to make it safe.
Fort du Télégraphe
Located a short distance from the pass at an altitude of 1570 m, above a sheer drop overlooking Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne, the impressive Fort du Télégraphe owes its name to the Chappe signalling mast which was built on the site in the early 19th C.
