SACRA DI SAN MICHELE

Abbey
A monument which is a symbol of the Piemonte Region and a place that inspired writer Umberto Eco to conceive the best-seller The name of the rose, the Sacra di San Michele is an abbey built between 983 and 987 on the top of mount Pirchiriano, 40 km from Turin.
From its towers you can admire the city of Torino and a breath-taking view of the Val Susa. Royal members of the House of Savoy are buried inside the main church, which dates back to the twelfth century.
Dedicated to the cult of Archangel Michael, defender of the Christian people, the Sacra is a stage of a 2000 km pilgrimage route which runs from Mont-Saint-Michel (France) to Monte Sant’Angelo (Puglia).
