In 1706, during the French-Spanish siege, the duke of Savoy Victor Amadeus II climbed to a vantage point at Superga to watch the enemy advance. Here he promised that, if victory were achieved, he would have built a votive monument.
The works, for which Juvarra was engaged, led to creating the basilica on the crest of the hill, a gem of baroque architecture connected to the Castle of Rivoli along the same route heading to France.
In the crypt of the church there are the Tombs of members of the Savoy dynasty, which can all be toured, and alongside it has an 18th century convent. The breathtaking view from here of the city and the Alpine range is renowned, a panorama which Rousseau defined “the most wonderful sight that can strike the human eye”.
In case of rain, fog, snow, the Museum opening is not granted.
