Built between 1843 and 1854, Les Grands Goulets Road is a route in the Vercors, a massif of mountains and plateaus in the Rh么ne alpes region of France.
This epic road is a winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains. Some accidents, causing several death, forced the French government to close the road permanently since 2006 after 156 years in use. For all the people who will no longer be lucky enough to see this historic road, there is still this tribute to the builder.
