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.

I had been at the Sacra in school trip, the memory of then was pleasant but today's experience, with adult eyes and greater awareness of history is another thing.

Arrived we are indicated by other patrons the position of the elevator to reach the ticket office, being us a couple with a pupetto of 10 months. Elevator and disabled entrance not adequately indicated so my wife ventures to the rain staircase and the baby in her arms, I discover the existence of the elevator and intercom; An employee responds and comes down to withdraw me and the stroller, just arrived so to say the least rude to me says "the lift is for the disabled now I fell but to return down the stroller load it and walk" to the face of the holy place , yet another TEMPLE converted into the market. I ask for clarification and begins to gesticulate as if the thing to her did not matter and I was only disturbing, sorry dear "ma'am" if with my tiket you pay your salary and eat at the end of the month...
