This unique 200 meter long fortification connects Fort des Tetes with Fort Randioullet.  It provides protected movement between the two forts along a covered corridor with loopholes and doors.  Bastions on either end permitted enfilade fire along the length of the fort.  Closed to the public, a Frenchman warned me of a dangerous basin inside, so tresspassing is not recommended.
