The Simplon Pass is a unique alpine crossing that stands out as one of the few passes above 2000 meters that remains open during winter, with high snow walls lining the way. The pass boasts a wide and well-maintained road that gradually ascends through a series of tunnels, covered galleries, and massive bridges. In 1801, as part of the construction of the Simplon Road, Napoleon mandated the construction of a hospice at the pass's summit to serve as both a barracks and a resting place. Today, the building has been modernized and refurbished, and it can now accommodate up to 130 visitors throughout the year.
