The Sacra di San Michele Abbey

The Sacra of San Michele is an ancient religious comples on the top of mount Pirchiriano (Alps of Piedmont), 40 km away from Turin.
From the nearby town of Sant'Ambrogio di Torino starts a thrilling via ferrata route, that goes to the top of Pirchiriano towards the San Michele Abbey.
The abbey was built between 983 and 987 aD, and was later expanded, with the construction of a separate building with guest-rooms for pilgrims following the popular Via Francigena.
The abbey, which for much of its history came under Benedictine rule, is now entrusted to the Rosminians.
Dedicated to the cult of the Archangel Michele, defender of the Christian people, the Sacra di San Michele fits inside a 2000-km-long pilgrimage route wich runs from Mont Saint-Michel (France) to Monte Sant’Angelo (Puglia, Italy).
