    Description :

    “The splendid Baroque church by Filippo Juvarra stands on the hill at the height of 669 metres, in a wonderful, panoramic position. According to tradition, the church was constructed to maintain an ought made by Vittorio Amedeo II during the French siege of 1706. The building of the church (1717–31) involved carrying out enormous earth excavations on the side of the hill…58 Savoy kings, queens and princes are buried in the crypt, from Vittorio Amedeo II to Carlo Alberto.”
