On the pilgrim path to la Sacra di San Michele
3 March 2023
For us to reach the complex of Sacra di San Michele during the week and without a car, we had to take the old pilgrim path from the town of Chiuso San Michele, a two hour long hike that winds up the side of the mountain, 600 m above the starting point. Unbeknownst to us, the paths from San Ambrosio are much more suited to experienced and prepared mountaineers - the few people we saw were decked out in hiking gear and carrying walking sticks. As we got higher, we were able to see more of the val di Susa, which was created by prehistoric glaciers that left plenty of blue-green basalt stone, which was used to pave the path and for much of the construction of the Sacra complex.
