Looking at Facebook today I saw these two photos taken from the wall of the Vauban fortress of Mont - Dauphin, located in the Alpes Maritimes near the French / Italian border. They were posted on the Fortiff Séré page with the words "Mieux que la plage, la fortif." (Better than the beach, fortification".) I could not agree more. It makes me want to go, immediately.
