Fort l'Ecluse

Today we went to see Fort l'Ecluse that was built somewhere in the 17th century. Now it sits by the Swiss border (but still on the French side) and is open to tourists and climbers. In fact, it seemed like yesterday there were more of the second kind, people with ropes climbed the via ferrata that goes up the rock to the top. Well, although it looks pretty awesome, we chose the stairs :) And there were 820 of them! But before reaching the terrace, we made a tour round the low-level chambers filled with art exhibitions.

From the terrace we had a nice view on the surrounding Swiss and French valleys. There was also a nice breeze, so we stayed for a longer while to cool down after a long stairs climb.
