Colle di Perla

Tucked away in the Cottian Alps, the road to the summit, also known as Colle della Perla, is called Via del Sale road. It’s a gravel and rocky high mountain road. The road that is traversing the pass was originally built with military function and was used during the Second World War. It’s closed from November 1 to March 31 every year.
