SANT'AMBROGIO DI TORINO
Perched on the peak of Monte Pirchiriano, the Romanesque abbey (11th century) is visible for miles around. Saint Michael’s Abbey is a working monastery and a tourist attraction. The building itself is spectacular and the sweeping views of the Susa Valley are breathtaking. Feel the emotion of following what remains of the ancient pilgrims path to reach the church that inspired Umberto Eco for his novel “The name of the rose”.
