In 1706 during the Frence Spanish siege, the duke of Savoy Victor Amadeus 11 climbed on a
vantage point at Superga to watch the enemy advance. Here he promised that, if victory were achieved , he would have built a native monument.
The works, for which Juvarra was engaged, led on clearing 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
In the crypt of the church there are the Tombs of members of the Savoy dynasty, which can all be turned and alongside it has an 18th century convent. The breathtaking view from here of the city
and Alpine range is renowned, a panorama which Rousseau defined “The most wonderful sight that can strike the human eye”

Blessed are those who remain faithful while they are treated by others and forgive them from their hearts. Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalized and show their closeness. Blessed are those who see God in every person and strive to discover others. Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home. Blessed are those who sacrifice their own comfort to help others. Blessed are those who pray and work for full fellowship among Christians.
