Treat yourself to an alpine escapade in history! From this summer, an educational trail will allow you to reach the archaeological site of the so-called Hannibal Wall, at 2651 m. From Liddes or Bourg St-Pierre, follow the pedestrian signs and go back nearly 2000 years to the Roman site. A leaflet (fr., g., angl., it.) will be available from June at the tourist offices of the Grand St-Bernard region.

The Hannibal Wall is a fortified position from the second half of the 1st century B.C. located on the heights of the municipality of Liddes in Valais (Switzerland) at an altitude of about 2650m. Its location is of tactical interest in the control of the eastern flank of the Val d’Entremont by the surveillance of a ring road of the main passage axis located at the bottom of the valley. The site has good observation possibilities and seems to be part of a system which today counts about ten positions between the Valais and the Aosta Valley.
