The Superga hill

The Superga is a hill situated on the south bank of the Po River to the east of Turin in north-west Italy. At 672 metres above sea level, it is one of the most prominent of the hills which form an amphitheatre around the city.

Superga is known as the site of many of the tombs of the kings of the House of Savoy, for the Basilica of Superga, for the Superga Rack Railway which connects it to the Turin suburb of Sassi, and for the Superga air disaster of 1949 in which almost the entire Torino A.C. football squad perished.
