Basilica of Superga is a stunning hilltop baroque basilica with intricate features like a towering dome and column designs. It was founded by Duke Vittorio Amedeo II of Savoy after the siege and the battle of Turin in 1706. Before the decisive battle Vittorio Amedeo II and his cousin went up on the hill of Superga to evaluate the deployment of enemy troops and choose the best strategy to liberate Turin from it. Just on the hill Duke made a vow to the Virgin Mary, promising Her that, if victorious, he would have built a shrine dedicated to her. (Superga, Turin, Italy)
