Saint gotthard pass

Introduction of Saint gotthard pass
Mountain pass in the Lepontine Alps, in the SE, the source for the Reuss, Rhine, Ticino, and Rhone rivers.

An important and well-traveled pass since the Middle Ages, its approaches were originally guarded by the League of the Three Cantons. At least by the 14th century, a hospice was established here to give aid to travelers. Destroyed by the French in 1800, it was reconstructed but burned down completely in 1905.
