Religious Site
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 search of the hidden St. Lawrence, we found instead the Cathedral. Although large and impressive on the outside, the Interior is simple and strangely bare of decorations.

  • It looks ordinary enough Cathedral, inside the Shroud. Open access is very rare. In the Cathedral you can see the image of the shroud and buy prayer in Russian with a pendant.

  • If it weren't for the shroud of Turin (still locked in a chapel and not visible) and for some relief work (especially the organ), in itself is not a complex of architectural and artistic interest. During a holiday in Turin there is much more to put in priority before making a brief visit to the Duomo.

  • 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 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.
  • 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!
  • This was built as the resting place for the Shroud of Torino
  • The Holy Shroud the view on several occasions, as a believer is one of those things that you can hardly explain.
