Mont-Dauphin - Tourism in the Hautes-Alpes

Overhanging the confluence of the Guil and Durance rivers from the top of a rocky plateau, the fortified town of Mont-Dauphin, built by the famous architect Vauban at the end of the 17th century, is today a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

From its military past as an impregnable citadel, Mont-Dauphin fortress, which is built of pink marble from Guillestre, has preserved a remarkable group of buildings: ramparts and bastions enclosing an arsenal, a powder magazine, army barracks and the choir of Saint-Louis church. The fort also comprises houses, fountains, communal washing places (lavoirs) and gardens to walk in. Along the ramparts, there is a fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding mountain landscape.

Not to be missed on a trip to Mont-Dauphin: Rochambeau barracks with its arched staircase and magnificent roof structure, and the Vauban museum located inside the arsenal.
