Swiss fortress


Recommended Posts

I caught part of a story on Foxtel History channel in a program called Abandoned Engineering. It is the story of Fortress Furgells in the Swiss mountains.


This looks like a typical Swiss mountain shed, but is in fact one entrance to the fortress, and contains a large cannon.




Here are just a couple of photos from within the underground fortress, with miles of tunnel, and quarters large enough to house a battalion of troops for 6 months.




See the story and amazing photos here.
