Historically, the Alpes-Maritimes were a fortified border over the centuries. We offer to make you discover the fortifications built by Vauban, as well as, General Séré de Rivières.
The position of the works, Italian or french, was conditioned by the border line which from 1860-1947 was below the present-day border. Thus, the forts built by the Italians in their time are today on french territory.
This military heritage does not stop there, it also includes living places or barracks occupied by the famous Blue Devils, their 'quarters' were located in the cities of Nice, Menton, Roquebrune Cap Martin, Antibes or Villefranche sur Mer.
You will also discover many roads and military tracks linking fortifications, built and maintained by temporary troops such as senegalese infantrymen. This landscape won't let you indifferent.
