  • Very nice this very particular shaped Shrine inside gives the impression of being circular, with several chapels that grow all around. Nice campanile outside, different era brick built, in complete contrast to the material of the Church. The beautiful square where stands the historic caffè "bicerin".

  • Definitely one of the most beautiful Churches in Torino and in the whole Italy. Very intricate decorations literally everywhere, make sure you explore all of its corners.
  • Beautiful church. Make sure you explore the whole church for some interesting art work on the wall.
  • Impressive. Definitely stop in, you will not regret it. Then get a "bicerin" at the café in front.
  • The only beautiful church in Turin. Must see.
  • One of the oldest places of worship in Turin, the city's most important shrine, dedicated to Mary, erected on the Piedmontese Baroque masterpiece ... existing Church of Sant'Andrea. I intervened on Guarini, Juvarra and Ceppi.Il is the pre-existing Bell Tower from the 11th century. The real name is the sanctuary of Santa Maria della Consolazione. Houses an icon of the Virgin, which is not the original icon believed to be miraculous, present in the ancient Church of Saint Andrew. On 20 June each year, the date of the anniversary of the miracle of the blind of Briancon, you make a procession through the city streets, which attracts a large number of faithful. In fact, the sanctuary of the Consolata is the most beloved by Torinesi.
