The Sacra di San Michele, sometimes known as Saint Michael's Abbey, is a religious complex on Mount Pirchiriano, situated on the south side of the Val di Susa overlooking the villages of Avigliana and Chiusa di San Michele, in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy.
This magical place was one of my latest destination for my travel photography discover. Italy is a place full of great locations from this point of view. Sacra di San Michele is not an image often seen in most famous travel photographers portfolios, nevertheless it is extremely fascinating.
It literally develops itself from the vivid rock of the mountain, it also is surrounded by mountains itself and in winter time it is extremely cold and snow white, which makes it difficult to reach the location.
