Mont-Dauphin
The Essential
Recommended
One of Vauban's greatest works, Mont Dauphine stands on a huge promontory, dominating the Guil and Durance valleys from a height of 100m/328ft. The stronghold is striking by the width of its streets and grid pattern; everything here has a defensive function from the gunpowder store to Rochambeau barrack, without forgetting the unusually proportioned church. A guided tour is ideal to explore all its secrets (including the underground passage linking the stronghold to Arçon lunette (bastion)).
