Basilica of Superga, Torino, Italy – Heroes Of Adventure

Basilica of Superga, Torino, Italy

The Basilica of Superga has been built by will of Duke Vittorio Amedeo II, because of a vow he made to the “Madonna delle Grazie” in 1706, when the city of Turin was putted under siege by the French-Spanish army. The project of the Basilica is by Filippo Juvarra, architect born in Messina who worked for the Savoia House. The baroque complex, inaugurated in 1731, is 75 meters tall, 51 meters long, and is located at 672 meters above sea level. The interior is enriched by six chapels, four altars and a Main Altar.
