Duomo di Torino e Cappella della Sacra Sindone hold much religious significance. The cathedral where the shroud rests dates back to the late 15th century. The shroud is scheduled to go on display in 2015. Approximately 4.5 m long by 1 m high (14.5 ft by 3.7 ft), the shroud contains a faint impression of a man who suffered crucifixion. It remains one of the most studied and controversial objects in human history, as many believe the image to be of Jesus Christ. Consider climbing the cathedral's bell tower on the combined ticket when visiting the Diocesan Museum.

  • In judging this church never be separated from the highest spiritual value that has the Holy Shroud contained in a glass case in a side chapel.

  • Very well organized. We got there at 8am and bus groups were already arriving it opens at 8:30am. We didn't wait at all just went through check point metal detector then walked around to the opening. Interesting and informative video about what the Shroud depicts so you'll know what to look for when you view the real thing, that way you don't waste time. But shame on those who used their flash it's forbidden! !
  • The Shroud of Turin is situated here. It's exhibited every 5 years and people from all over the world come here to see it!
  • The shroud wasn't out when we went, it only comes out once every year or so. As such, there's no reason to bother visiting in my opinion.
  • This was built as the resting place for the Shroud of Torino
