Explore Turin through its architecture with this tour of Basilica of Superga.
The famous architect Juvarra designed the monumental Baroque-Classical church – the Basilica de Superga.
The Basilica was completed in 1731, and in it you will find the tombs of the Royal House of Savoy. Its Baroque design references St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, where Juvarra studied for ten years. You’ll marvel at the sheer scale – Amadeus II desired a monument that would remind all of Savoyard power, and as such, the church is fairly conspicuous, built upon a hill from which one can see the Alps on a clear day.
Getting to the Basilica de Superga is easy; you can reach it either by foot or by jumping on the Superga Rack Railway, which starts in the suburb of Sassi and continues through Turin up to Superga Hill.
