The fort of Janus is built in the North East of the place of Briançon, above the position of Gondran. This fully-tested modern fort is the highest in the square and the most advanced on the Italian border and it consists of two parts, an infantry blockhouse built in 1887 and an underground part built from 1898. A frontal action casemate was built to flank the Gondran defence line. It was armed with 4 95 guns on a coast guard. It is the only casemate of this type built in France. And thanks to the association Forts-Janus and the Tourist Office you have the opportunity to visit this book with a guide.
