Fort l'Écluse - DJI Mavic Pro 4k


France's Fort l'Écluse is situated in the foothills of the Jura Mountains in the Ain Department, astride a natural route between France and Switzerland which was known since the time of Julius Caesar.  The current fortress dates to the 12th century and expanded in the 17th century; it was heavily damaged by Austrian in the waning days of the Napoleonic wars.  Seen here in this drone video by Najibk, the fort was one of the last French positions to surrender after the Fall of France in June, 1940.
