Tre Sassi fort is a fortress and museum on the road to the Passo di Valparola, within the comune of Cortina d'Ampezzo in the southern Alps of the Veneto region of Northern Italy.

During World War I it was a favorite target for the Italians, and the fort was destroyed as there was inadequate artillery to defend it.Forte Tre Sassi is one of three preserved sites which make up the Great War Museum in the Dolomites.
