FORTEZZA MONTE ALTURA

MONTE ALTURA FORTRESS

Military fort dating back to the end of the 19th century, it was part of the defensive system built around the isle of La Maddalena to protect the military base of the Royal Sardinian Navy and the entire archipelago of La Maddalena, which was considered a strategic location to defend the Tyrrhenian Sea from attacks of the French naval fleet.

The impressive stairway makes this fort, built entirely of granite, unique. In the 20th century it was in fact considered one of the most beautiful forts in Europe.
