Basilica di Superga10
Why locals love it
This cathedral rises from the top of Superga hill (672 metres high) with its impressive size: 51 metres long with a dome 75 metres tall. You can see it from everywhere in Turin. It was builded as a thanksgiving gift to the Vigin Mary for the victory of the Piedmontese people on the French besieging Turin in 1706.
Why you should visit it
From here you can enjoy a great view over the city of Turin and the Alpine peaks! It is nice to have a walk in the park around the cathedral in a sunny day. During the night the basilica is enlightened to be visible also from downtown.
Get the "tranvia" miniature train Sassi-Superga to reach it without using the car, it is very funny!
