The fort is located in Sainte Agnes.

It's really worth a visit (5€ per adult in 2015 2€ fo children up to 14) because it is huge and perfectly preserved. Built in the 30's, it was used to defeat the italian invasion in 1940. Inside you will see the rooms, the artillery intact. The rails and the wagons used to move the shells around still exist. Dug in the rock, it's a 4 stores building with running water (before the village), phone, a proctection system against lethal gaz which was able to sustain itself for 3 monthes with hundreds of soldiers inside. Only the relentless and deafening noise will be missing when you visit it. The kitchens, the dormitories, the command center are intact with their furniture.
