Well, you can go through this tunnel if you want to reach Fort Jafferau, but it is most likely one of the entrances of the Galeria dei Saraceni I mentioned in post #41.

Somewhere on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Which you go thru on the way to Mount Jaffreu. The tunnel is just under 1km long, just wide enough for 1 car, and has a few bends, and absolutely pitch black.
I stopped to take these pics, then just stood there in the total darkness when a few walkers with torches came thru. They hadn't seen me so i jumped out and went BOO!
I don't think they appreciated my sense of humour
The water and pitch blackness made it interesting
It's the Mas d'Azil. Here is one from outside...... The red bike is just in front of the road tunnel; my Commando to the right. You can see how big the river tunnel is.
Sorry about the quality - old steam driven photo.
