Basilica di Superga, Turin

4.5
#1 of 24 in Historic Sites in Turin
Religious Site Historic Site
Explore the Basilica di Superga to discover the tombs of many princes and kings of the House of Savoy. The church you see here today is a result of a promise Duke Victor Amadeus II of Savoy made in September 1706. He climbed a hill and saw Turin besieged by Franco-Spanish forces. He swore that, in case of victory, he would have a monument built to the Virgin Mary on the very hill where he stood. Climb the church's spiral staircase for views the city and, on clear days, the Alps. Take a guided tour for access to special areas. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Turin holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Basilica di Superga and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Did you come up with a very nice tram that winds in the Park of the Hill. Monumental Church, beautiful. Mix of culture, art, history, nature. Breathtaking panorama which can be seen throughout the city and the Alps in the background. You can visit the dungeons, the Royal rooms and finally a minute of silence before the inscription of Grande Torino whose plane crashed on this hill. Moving memories and tributes continue to visitors and fans, nearly 70 years after tragedy

  • Breath taking view of Turin from here. Amazing place, you can take train or can walk :D
  • A must visit place while in Torino. It's not easy to get here by public transportation since it's up in the hill and there aren't many buses coming up all the time. The place has a small park around and it's a beautiful spot to view the city from above
  • Beautiful temple with great views of the city. Take the cable car for a nice journey. Visit it during sunny days for the views. Torino football team memorial is located right behind it.
  • amazing place in Torino! the views are amazing, you can see all Torino and to go up you can take a small train with a spectacular path.
  • I went up there by the cable car. This was an wonderful experience that I could see such stunning natural scenery of Torino. After I reached the station of Superga, I saw the Alps very clearly! I was glad that I had such unforgettable experience in Torino.
