Area: Italy      Date: February 2013
The Fenestrelle Fort is a fortress overlooking Fenestrelle, Piedmont, northern Italy. It is the biggest alpine fortification in Europe, having a surface area of 1.300.000 m². Originally built by the French to a design by Vauban beginning in 1694 and enlarged by Savoy between 1728 and 1850, it guards the access to Turin via the Chisone valley, and stands at altitudes between 1.100 and 1.800 m.


A fine and humble portrait of the fort. KR Jan.

Give your images more time. The last one was a city-overview. This evening I wanted to take a closer look on it, but unfortunately it was already deleted, although it had a good rating. For safety reasons I rate more quickly now. Normally there should be no use of hustle on this website.

@Jörg: the pano of Cremona I really liked. I 've replaced because it seemed there was a slight error in the stitching. I will insert another time. Cremona is a good example of a city of the plain of the Po Valley.

Great! Looks a little bit like Nepal?! Tanti saluti Seb

@Sebastian: in Piedmont say that remembers the Great Wall of China and call it, a bit jokingly, the Great Wall of Piedmont. The wall is longer than 3 km.
The most surprising thing is that the Fort has never been besieged and has been used in the past mainly as a prison (particularly for political prisoners).
