  • When you enter this real Church remains with the upturned nose and mouth open to the splendor. Small but rich in meanings. We were lucky because we were greeted by a voluntary Guide "Giulia" which sublimely explained the history and construction of the Church in a really exhaustive. Thanks to the volunteer guides!

  • Classic mistake of those who live in Turin is to miss the jewelry at home. In fact, this Baroque Pearl of Guarini, from outside the known, indeed the façade had to be consistent with the palaces of the time in piazza Castello. Indeed has the classic façade of a church, and it's not like the other also in for the particular form. Important to the construction of the dome, and the internal shape, rich and delicate at the same time. Guard for free by volunteer guides that will make you even more interesting this visit making you see things that can be seen only in the days of the equinox.

  • 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!
