Visit “Napoleon’s Tunnel”
To understand the origins of what is now the Tenda Tunnel, one must descend to an altitude of 1,750 metres, along a diversion of the road down the Italian side of the Col.
A dark, cold, forked cavern, mistakenly known as “Napoleon’s Tunnel”, is what remains of the attempt, begun by Duke Carlo Emanuele I of Savoy in 1614, to build a tunnel to make the crossing of the pass safer.
Due to a lack of funds, the work was interrupted and towards the end of the 18th century, Victor Amadeus III tried to take the situation under control again, but without success.
Thanks to previous attempts, what we know today as the “Tenda Tunnel” was finally inaugurated in 1882 at an altitude of 1,321 metres, and it is a unique place to visit, with ice stalactites and stalagmites.
