Basilica di Superga

Recommended
Built on top of a hill that peaks at 670m, this imposing building, constructed between 1717 and 1731, is the masterpiece of architect Juvarra. The basilica has a circular layout and is topped with a dome, but its most remarkable feature is its monumental façade. Superga is first and foremost the pantheon of the Sardinian kings: the crypt houses the tombs of Victor Amadeus II, who commissioned the basilica, Charles Albert and numerous princes of the House of Savoy. The esplanade affords a fantastic view over Turin, the Po Valley and the Alps.
