    Wikipedia: Gotthard Pass (Italian Passo del San Gottardo) was since the Middle Ages to the construction of the railway and motorway tunnel one of the important north-south links across the Alps. The Gotthard axis is still known as the European transport corridor that leads north-south over the Gotthard massif or below it. It is the direct transport connection through the Central Alps, as it only leads over a ridge. For this reason, unlike the pass itself, it still has great significance for Alpine transit. Eponym for the pass is the holy Godehard of Hildesheim.
