Fort Dauphin

This fort and Fort des Salettes were designed to dominate the road from Italy from both sides.  The fort and Fort Randouillet also helped protect Fort des Tetes which is on high ground overlooking Briancon, which is behind Fort des Tetes.


Fort des Tetes is in the distance.

There are casemated guns in the flanks of the bastions, dominating the ditch.
