Consisting of two blocks, the body of the blockhouse and that of the artillery batteries, connected to each other by a corridor, was built at 1,484 metres asl in the Malga Cherle area, a barrage for the Folgaria Plateau.

The fort was equipped with four domes for 10 cm howitzers, fifteen 8 mm M 07/12 machine guns in armoured blockhouses and vertical armoured shields, two 6 cm M 10 guns in the scarp wall fort and two 10cm M 12 howitzers in the “traditor” artillery battery. The garrison comprised 5 officers and 128 soldiers.

At the outbreak of the war, the fort was heavily bombed by the 280 mm Italian batteries located on Campomolon.

It cannot be visited internally.
