Duomo di Torino e Cappella della Sacra Sindone, Turin

4.2
#5 of 24 in Historic Sites in Turin
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.

    On one occasion I read or heard that Italy possesses 40% of all works of art in the world. This makes the country an authentic outdoor museum. Turin is a very beautiful town, with an ancient area typical of rationalism, distributed grid, with streets and avenues intersecting at right angles, like the Eixample of Barcelona or Manhattan. In the arcades of the city, walking distance from the railway station, you will find all known clothing brands, before arriving in Piazza Maggiore, the Royal Palace and the Cathedral. In the Cathedral of Turin a chapel where a reproduction of the face of the Shroud is exposed. For believers, the face of Christ; for Agnostics, a magnificent fake, taking into account that the scientists have dated it at age average, according to carbon-14 tests. Whatever it is, I would not fail to visit the Cathedral, which is not dazzling but interesting. In this church there to pay input. You will also find the Mole Antonelliana, which was a synagogue and is now a museum. The most striking is its dome and the needle to the Crown, which is a viewpoint with magnificent views, both of Turin and of the Alps. Best regards.

    Place of extreme spirituality in which the chapel of the Holy Shroud has a meaning beyond the terrain for the faithful who are visiting

  • Place of worship. Meditation. In the background sacred music.
  • 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
