On the right of the Gran Madre di Dio, along the slopes of the hill, is the road that leads to the Villa della Regina from which it takes its name. A grandiose baroque construction, from the beginning of the 18th century, it has been worked on by the greatest architects of the time including Vitozzi, Juvarra and Di Castellamonte. Its gardens are also worthy of note, decorated with sumptuous stairs reminiscent of roman 17th century villas. The name derives from Queen Anna of Orleans, wife of Vittorio Amedeo II who chose this residence for her.
