  • Personally, the Baroque is a style that just suits my liking but this church hidden in a building is beautiful. Jewel of Guarini, it is said that the population doesn't want to enter fearing the collapse of the dome, with no support. The Church has neither front nor Bell Tower. Unique, at least in Turin, I recommend a visit.

  • A small church. Very interesting agreed. Sun moving during the day different limits. I want to sit back and consider her decoration, in one of the limits is a small museum devoted to the Turin shroud. If you will have time to stay here longer.
