  • Located just on the left side of Palazzo Chiablese, it's a small unassuming church with a faded exterior, but when you manage to enter it, you will definitely be impressed by the frescoes and the pain...  more »
  • To make the most you would need a guide or a tour where they could explain all the details about it. May be the best one in Turin.  more »
  • Baroque church with no typical facade - an add-on to the Royal Palace. The church was built in XVII century and really worth to see.  more »

  • Statues and frescoes alternate in a full octagonal space of the baroque style elements. To visit
  • 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!
