Duomo di Torino e Cappella della Sacra Sindone, Turin

4.1
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.

  • Nothing outstanding except for the characteristic of being an important Church for "Shroud". Frescoes and statues are superb as usual ... but they are in any church that is of importance.

  • Finally reopened to the public after the lengthy restoration, the chapel of the shroud back to surprise and amaze. Unfortunately it is not yet finished the restoration of the altar, but it's still wonderful. Council (in the Galleria Sabauda) virtual tour filmed with a drone that explains both the building technique is the restoration.

  • Since a few weeks Turin has a cultural attraction in addition, among his already numerous. No one should stop at two places he should depart out without devoting incredibly spectacular in the heart of the old town. I refer to the Church of San Lorenzo, which is considered the most beautiful baroque Church of Catholic Europe and the chapel of the Holy Shroud. The latter was reopened after twenty-one years of restoration and now is part of the Museum Centre of Palazzo Reale. Both are masterpieces of the architect Guarino Guarini, who designed and built them in the second half of the seventeenth century. Geometrical rigour, chromatic, creativity and mathematical relationships, and invention come together in events and locations so stylish and amazing to take your breath away. His gaze caressing the precious marble, which rests on the colors and discovers the play of light over the incredible intertwining of the domes will excite. In April 1997, dreadful night of ghostly 11 where the chapel was destroyed by fire, I cried, I cried with lot of Turin, for a long time, without hope. You can imagine my emotion when I could return to that wonderful place, raise your gaze and rediscover the charm intact memories of many years ago?

  • Fully restored roof is a stunning archetectural feat. Really beautiful.
  • Great experience, also after the big fire!
  • Amazing chapel that you can't miss!!
  • Reopened after nearly 3 decades of repairs and restoration. An absolute gem and a significant place to visit for those arriving in Turin. So happy to have this site returned to the public for admiration.
  • Here you can see the replica of the shroud of Turin.
