  • a small wonder! certainly the baroque is overloaded... in gilding and stucco. but it is a place that invites to meditation, which gives off heat. If there is a church in Turin this is it!

  • I entered this particular Church from "façade" having the good fortune to meet a volunteer explaining to tourists a brief history and some trivia on it. So I got to see that the architect Guarino Guarini was also a profound knowledge of astronomy, as well as a well-rounded artist. And this is detectable by the play of lights that you discover in the equinoxes for hours. Many thanks to the talented volunteer, who didn't even bother the offer that would have given from the heart and that I then poured into the Church. An interesting explanation of the buildings, monuments, works of art does surely appreciate your visit. Viva volunteers!

  • Baroque church with magnificent dome. Entrance free. The facade is all on in the square.

  • 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
  • Awesome!
  • The first church that housed the shroud. A necessary visit to interesting insights of value in works of art and the charm and mystery of architectural and positions of lights.
