  • Is beautiful the dome seen from the outside, that stands out sula regolarissima geometry of Piazza Castello, also because the Church does not have frontage. From the inside is even more beautiful, inserted into a masterpiece of Piedmontese Baroque.

  • I recently discovered this church and whenever I can I jump us to admire its beautiful dome! Is very quiet, uncrowded. Beautiful frescoes as well as the altar. Well worth a visit, whether you are tourists or locals!

  • Do not go on Sunday if you can because there are functions. the facility is really original, as well as the inside. To see.

  • The most unremarkable entrance hides one of the most remarkable interiors I've seen. If you have a chance to talk to a guide, do, because there's a lot of stuff that is not obvious at first sight.
  • First of all the entrance is totally free. Once entering the church, you should look upwards in order to see one of the most important architectural jewels in Turin! Must see it.
  • Perfect.
  • Definitely one of Turin's must see interiors. It's free and stunning, prepare to be blown away!
  • Beautiful church with wonderful frescos. Has a chamber which explains the history of Shroud of Torino
