Fort l'Écluse

  • Historic site and monument
  • Fort
Longeray 01200 Léaz
At the Pays de Gex gateway, Fort l'Ecluse, a formerly military site, is one of three examples of mountain fortifications in France during the first half of the XIXth century.
The fort now welcomes the public and offers a rich and varied cultural season from June to September.
In a fascinating, centuries-old, listed fortified site built into the mountainside, walls, round towers and casemates welcome you for moments full of surprises. 1165 steps carved into the rock form the underground staircase linking the two forts, making this visit alone well worth the detour. A terrace and bar welcome you for a relaxing break.
