The family lived in the farm house Bosco: 16 August 1815 John Bosco was born on. The Basilica is composed of two churches. The foundation stone was blessed the June 11, 1961 it was opened for worship only the lower church in 1965, with a capacity of 700 seats. In the lower floor dominates the marble, located above the wood. The upper Church was consecrated in 1984 from the card. Ballestrero and was renovated in 1999. On the back wall is the big statue of the risen Christ in lime wood. The height is 8 m, the arm span 6 m, weight 30 q. draws the mission indicated in Don Bosco in 9 years dream and the pedagogy of optimism.
