  • Beautiful and located on top of a hill, panoramic view of the city of Turin. The Interior is great, there is a lovely Nativity scene, very beautiful paintings.

  • I made the detour to see this Basilica that to convince me that my negative judgment on this monument was accurate. Then I walked into this place, and really, despite my unbelief, what inner beauty. An architecture that turns, fascinating stained-glass windows bays, the chapels radiating, a crypt which imposes its solemnity and a place where you feel at peace. Thanks to the designers of such a place and all those who contribute to maintain it to allow the visitor like me to discover modern architecture and what it can bring inner peace.
