  • During a visit to palazzo Carignano, the guide told us about this church that we hadn't noticed. Actually not having the classic churchyard you don't really notice. Too bad because it's really beautiful.

  • visiting this church would be very attractive even without the help of volunteers from the educational service; with their contribution and help the Church shows itself in many of the secrets of the designer. not to be missed.

  • A jewel of Baroque art related to the Royal family and built with great skill. Go and be guided by volunteers with great passion will reveal the beautiful hidden corners of this church that hardly you would pick to the naked eye.
