Avigliana is a town and comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Torino in the Piemonte region or Italy, with 12,480 inhabitants as of January 1, 2017. It lies about 25 kilometres west of Torino in the Susa valley, on the highway going from Turin to Frejus, France.

It is best known for two maar lakes, Lago Grande and Lago Piccolo. Also nearby is the massive Sacra di San Michele. Avigliana was captured by Emperor Henry VI in 1187, but later it was acquired by Thomas I of Savoy. In 1536, in the course of the Italian Wars, it was again stormed by French troops. French attacks repeated in 1630 and 1690, the latter ending with the destruction of the castle.

It has two gates on the A32 Bardonecchia-Turin motorway. It has also a station on the Turin-Modane railroad. Wikipedia
