Fort

Exilles

Fortifications

This alpine fortification unique for its architecture, dominating the town of Exilles from a cliff, was remodeled several times through the centuries. Its current structure dates back to the beginning of XIX century.

An elevator built into the rock in 2011 allows to approach gradually a touching visit full of fascination, through the self-guided visit, also thanks to the installations of the renowned artist Richi Ferrero. Two routes help the visitor discover the monument: a circular route within the stronghold reveals the various building levels; a visit below the imposing and stunningly spectacular roof completes a fascinating itinerary. Stone soldiers, sculptures, images and sounds accompany the visitor along an unexpected journey into the past and into the memory of the mountain soldier: models, drawings and sketches narrate the Fort’s centuries of history in a rigorous yet evocative way.
