  • Almost invisible to the eyes of passersby, inside the Church hides a beautiful Dome, valuable for the architectural games and lights. Attention to opening hours, might quit on my lunch break.

  • I visited this church almost by accident. Located on the northwest side of piazza castello in next to the Royal Palace In the Baroque style with a beautiful dome illuminated by eight elliptical Windows. Definitely worth a visit

  • Statues and frescoes alternate in a full octagonal space of the baroque style elements. To visit
  • Definitely one of Turin's must see interiors. It's free and stunning, prepare to be blown away!
  • This church does have its own peculiarity, it doesn't have a traditional facade, it was built to be integrated to the square, this peculiarity is pretty unique for this period's churchs.
  • Beautiful church with wonderful frescos. Has a chamber which explains the history of Shroud of Torino
  • Nice place!
