  • The beauty of this Church cannot be explained unless you visit! In the Center, hidden by the simple façade, a Baroque church.

  • Amazing and overwhelming decoration inside, but you'd never guess from the outside. Historic and architecturally important. You'll just sit back and stare.  more »
  • A tourist, and thankfully now in our Torino are increasing, whether it's in a hurry might miss the Church of San Lorenzo and it would be a shame. Its proximity to the Royal Palace and the Cathedral could lead to choices but a visit with Security Council urges, maybe quick but very careful, this little masterpiece of art and Royal Church of suggestion very beloved by Torinesi.

  • 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.
