Forte Begato stands over the city, 475 meters above sea level. It is one part of the Forte Sperone together with the Forte Castellaccio . Genova depended on this trio of forts to defend it. Built by Sheban military genius between 1819 and 1823, the Begato fort could hold 840 soldiers and 41,000 kg. of munitions in the powder store.

The fort will host a museum of the history of Genovese fortifications and a history of music.
