Col de Pernante

The road to the pass starts at the famous Col de Tende/Colle di Tenda. It’s a gravel road generally in good shape and not too steep. No problem for an ordinary 4x4 vehicle. After the summit there’s a trail to Fort Pernante, at an elevation of 2.117m above the sea level. The fort was built in 1883 and had a fully stocked battery that was disarmed during the First World War.
