More Juvarra

This is the Superga in Turin. It sits atop a mountain and in theory looks down upon the Po Valley if it weren't for all the smog from those Fiats. It was designed by Fililppo Juvarra for the Savoy family and constructed from 1715 onwards. It is easy to observe the strong vertical emphasis common to much of Juvarra's work.

The view toward the alps, the church is 675 metres above sea level.
