Monte dei Cappuccini Tips (7)

Amazing view from Monte dei Cappuccini

It is well worth a walk to Monte dei Cappuccini, the hill on the other side of the Po (about 15 minutes by foot from the Gran Madre) where you can find the church of Santa Maria del Monte. Three the reasons to reach the Cappuccini:
1) the amazing view of the city
2) the Church
3) Museo Nazionale della Montagna.

Monte dei Cappuccini

Monte de Cappuccini is located on the other side of the River Po, in the area called La Collina. It is easily reached by foot or by bus, and I would estimate the walk from the bottom of the hill to the top to take an easy fifteen minutes. From the top, you will have beautiful, panoramic views of the city (so go on a clear day!), and you can also visit the National Mountain Museum, which delves into all things related to mountains. The museum has recently re-opened to the public after long renovations.

* This museum participates in the Abbonamento Musei Torino Piemonte program *

on blue

(as someone knows I am in blue time in these days, so here a tribute to Blue color).

the "Monte dei Cappuccini" is in the front of the city across the Po river. On winter season Turin is adorned by the "Luci d'Artista" (Light by Artist), several installation of lights along the main streets and square.
Monte dei Cappuccini becomes deep blue for this reason.

Monte dei Cappuccini

One of the best places to go to have a good panoramic view of Turin. At night, on clear night by the way (as the weather is Turin is awfully unfriendly), the city lights will awe you from this vantage point.

The Church of Saint Mary of the Hill, a convent and the National Mountain Museum are found in the hill. The convent is that of the Capuchin monks known for its saintly life and intelligent apostolic behaviours.

During Christmas season (as early as the first week of November), the hill is lighted with blue neon lights tracing the contours of the church. Lovely and a sight to behold from below.

Monte dei Cappuccini

It is definitely worth taking a walk here (about 15 minutes on foot from the Gran Madre church). This little hill on the other side of the Po – 284 meters above sea-level – was chosen as the site for the church of Santa Maria del Monte (designed by Ascanio Vitozzi in 1584). There are three reasons to visit the cappuccino monks: the view, the church, and the Museo Nazionale della Montagna (the National Mountain Museum). In 1888 a funicular was built to reach the summit but was destroyed by bombings during the war.

and Lourdes

This is a less known fact.
The fence at the feet of the Mary statue on Monte di Cappuccini, is the original gate from the cave of Lourdes (France).
