Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Piedmont / Province of Turin / Sant'Ambrogio di Torino / Sacra di San Michele
Admire the marble "Porta dello Zodiaco," a 12th-century masterpiece, at Sacra di San Michele. Until recent times, skeletons of dead monks were visible at this large religious complex atop of Mount Pirchiriano. You can still walk up the Stairway of the Dead, which is flanked by arches and tombs. Explore the grounds of the Romanesque church and discover ruins from a monastery and an ancient church. After the winding drive to this area, you'll need to take a short, steep walk up from the parking lot. You must wear modest clothing to enter; you can borrow a shawl to cover your shoulders. Our Sant'Ambrogio di Torino trip itinerary planner makes visiting Sacra di San Michele and other Sant'Ambrogio di Torino attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Visiting this 11th century abbey, constructed upon a mountain not far from Turin, was an experience I shall never forget. It rose like a medieval stone mirage and within the complex are marvelous...

Amazing place to visit around Turin, it’s really worth the detour. I recommend doing the way by foot as it is only 2h from under the hill. You see really great views on the way and it is really rewarding.
Sacra di San Michele is definitely worth a visit. The Sacra itself is amazing and the view is incredible. It is possible to see as far as Torino on one side and Val di Susa on the other. You can use your smartphone as an audio guide when scanning the QR codes. If you want to visit with your baby it is possible. I would not use a stroller but a baby carrier instead. We had no problem at all with the carrier and were able to visit everything. From the parking lot to Sacra di San Michele and back again took us exactly two hours.
