The Esseillon fortifications
Built by the Piedmont-Sardinia Kingdom between 1817 and 1834 to protect from French invasions, the Esseillon forts are listed "Monuments historiques". Building forts began in 1820 during the reign of Charles-Félix, thanks to the war indemnity levied in 1815, was completed in 1833. The place includes 5 forts which have the name of the royal family of Piedmont-Sardinia who ruled on the Savoie from 1811 to 1860.
Entirely restored, this fort with its hexagonal yard, have the name of the wife of Charles-Félix.
It is today, a gîte d'étape, holiday center, refuge-gate of the Vanoise National Park and a restaurant.
It can be visited (for the part that is outside the lodgings) all year round and is accessible by car.
Charles-Albert was the king from 1831 to 1849. He abdicated in favor of his son: Victor-Emmanuel II.
Construction began in 1831, it only remains of this building two small buildings of garrison and base of a tower. A long gap was linking it to the fort Marie-Christine to prevent attacks from the village of Aussois. It can't be visited but it is the departure point of the path "Sentier des Bâtisseurs".
Born in Torino in 1765, he was king from 1821 to 1831. He is the brother and successor of Victor-Emmanuel 1st.
The fort was commissioned 1827, it has the shape of a star and is much smaller (garrison of 150 men), but has huge walls. Locally called "the demolished fort", Charles-Félix was destroyed under Napoléon III,when Savoie was attached to France in 1860. Being in very bad repair, visiting the fort is not recommended for your safety. The fort and its romantic setting should be admired from the road.
Fort VICTOR-EMMANUEL 1er
Born in Torino in 1759, he was king from 1802 to 1821. Main fort, it was built to accommodate a garrison of 1500 men. Organized as a real place of life, it includes a chapel, an hospital and a penitentiary. Great site of the department and site of regional interest, this building is now part of an important programme of renovation. Covering the roofs with lauzes has given the fort its former aspect. Since summer 2010, a "Promenade Savoyarde de Découverte" takes you in 1841 in the footsteps of a soldier stationed in garrison at the fort, then called "the fort of the Point of the Day".
Marie-Thérèse was the wife of Victor-Emmanuel 1st. This fort, in the shape of a horseshoe, was to prohibit the passage of theroyal road of the Mont-Cenis. Completed in 1825, blocking the route to Italy, it contained twenty cannon casemates, ditch behind a strongly defended. Isolated, it was connected to the whole Esseillon by a cable suspended above the ravine through which transited goods. Later, the men travel the bridge of the Devil's bridge to cross the river Arc.
Entirely restored since July 2007, the fort houses the "Centre d'interprétation du Patrimoine Fortifié", exhibitions, organize thematic visits and evening visits, cultural events...From its 100 metres, the bridge of the Pont du Diable offers breathtaking views of the gorges of the Arc river. It is also a departure point of the Via Ferrata du Diable. You can also have an aerial view practising the giant tyroliennes of Paradise and Devil.
