Barrière of Esseillon :
The entrance of the Haute Maurienne possesses an exceptional vestige of defense lines made by the House of Savoy against a possible French invasion.
It is classified as an historic monument, forts were built by the sovereigns of Savoy between 1820 and 1850 At the top of a natural barrier, it was an obstacle that forbade the access between the Haute-Maurienne and the Pass Mont-Cenis.
Three kilometers long and 250 m in height, this barrier is made up of 5 forts bearing the names of the kingdom's sovereigns: the Marie-Thérèse redoubt, Fort Victor-Emmanuel, Fort Charles-Félix, Fort Marie-Christine and the unfinished fort Charles-Albert. After the unification of Savoy to France in 1860, the forts lost their usefulness. Fort Charles-Albert will be completely destroyed and Fort Charles-Félix in part.
The forts join the ranks of the French army. Then, they will be occupied during the Second World War by Moroccan skirmishers as evidenced by the signs of their battalion drawn on the walls.
There are 3 routes to explore the place freely and a more fun ride (treasure hunts for the family).
