Google Map of Fort Gordolon (Maginot Line Gros Ouvrage)

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The gros ouvrage of Gordolon which was manned by 246 men is located close to the western bank of the River VÚsubie at the end of a long dead end road off the D2565.Approaching the site the road becomes more overgrown and rutted and is eventually blocked by a fallen tree.

The main entrance (Block 1) is a further 200 yards along the road.

Gordolon is on two levels with the entrance block, usine and caserne at road level with a stairway up to an intermediate corridor 60 feet above. At each end of this corridor further stairs lead to the two fighting blocks. The initial layout is similar to other forts in the Alpes Maritimes Sector, just inside the entrance there is a defended dog leg and beyond that an air lock into the main lower corridor.
