  • A place of tranquility, but also in history where they fit inserts of the city, born from the work of Don Bosco in the last century, interesting to listen to during the holidays and the sound of the organ

  • Not to be missed for the tourist who comes to Turin. One of the most beautiful Churches in the world, is the parent company of the Salesians, because Don Bosco began his work for young people, first for those of Turin and then for youth around the world. This shrine was erected by Saint John Bosco in 1868 as a monument of gratitude to the Virgin Mary, under the title of help of Christians. The altar dedicated to Saint Joseph, very big and beautiful, has the distinction of being the only important altar of the shrine remained as Don Bosco wanted, even after the enlargement of the Basilica made from 1934 to 1938.

  • Surely one of the most beautiful basilicas ever seen. An amazing place of worship and baroque art. Place of repose of St Bosco.  more »

  • Life-changing!
  • Really beautiful!
  • Along with the Consolata, nearby the most famous basilica and sanctuary of Turin. Heart of the Salesians of Saint John Bosco, contains the tomb of the Saint. Impressive size of the aisle inside, maybe the biggest church in Turin with the Cathedral. And rare beauty painting by Mary Queen that soars above the altar. Service of messe/busy confessions: put almost every hour and confessions all day, every day. Deo gratias for this sanctuary!

  • Shrine of Mary help of Christians Catholic is unabasilica [1] of the city of Turin. Opened on 9 June 1868, the shrine was built by Saint John Bosco. It was designed by the engineer Antonio Spezia. The Church was dedicated to Mary, invoked by Don Bosco as help of Christians. On June 28, 1911 was elevated to the dignity of a minor basilica. [2] it was then enlarged between 1934 and 1942 in conjunction with the canonisation of Don Bosco, whose remains are now housed in a chapel which was completed in 1938. [3] in the District of Valdocco and, around this shrine, proliferate the activities managed by the Salesians purely dedicated to young people, such as schools and public speakers.

  • Beautiful church that takes your breath away. Every corner is a masterpiece of honey-coloured marbles of a heavenly atmosphere. The altars are one more beautiful than the other, and our Lady is so beautiful that I could no longer go on.
