La fontaine Napoléon is a known landmark during the climb to the Col de Faucille. It is located at an altitude of 1 047 m. The Col de Faucille is at 1323 m. So you still have to climb 276 m from here to reach the top of the Col de Faucille. The name of the fountain is linked to the fact that Napoléon started to rule his empire in 1805, the moment this fountain was built.
