  • Piazza castello in Turin, one of the largest and most beautiful, almost hidden and secluded a church without tower built by emanuele filiberto l, represents the first embryo of the laying of the foundation stone of a country called Italy. the battle of san Quentin with the Spaniards for the French in 1557 won by Savoy (THEN CALLED SAVOIARDI) sets out how we made the first State of the Savoy independent. for this reason and for oath made this beautiful baroque church, full of esotericism and references that make it unique, and unfortunately forgotten by Italians. It all started here, visit it, and appreciate it's a stimulus of italianità and of our history.

  • 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.
