"Superga - High up over Turin" Superga by Willettsworld

Superga Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 21 photos

On a hill to the north-east of Turin stands the superb baroque basilica of Superga, built by Juvarra in 1717-31. The commission came from Duke Vittorio Amedeo II, in fulfiment of a vow made to the Virgin Mary in 1706 while the French were besieging the duke and his army in Turin.

The best way to reach the basilica is to take the Superga Rack Railway from Sassi which can be reached by taking bus 60 or tram 15. The views from the top are great except for the smog!
