The construction of the Sacra di San Michele began in the 10th century, and it was dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel, who was believed to have appeared on the mountain. The complex consists of several buildings, including the basilica, a monastery, a library, and a museum, all of which were added over the centuries.

The most notable structure is the Romanesque-style basilica, which was completed in the 12th century and features two towers and an imposing facade. Inside, the basilica contains a crypt, a choir, and several chapels with frescoes dating from the 14th and 15th centuries.

The Sacra of Saint Michele is a popular destination for pilgrims and tourists alike and is considered one of the most important landmarks in the Piedmont region. It has also been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
