  • The eye moves restlessly and inebriates to such beauty; He doesn't know where to stop and vague abducted between the architecture, mosaics, frescoes, stained glass, paintings, sculptures, marbles, jewelry, inlays, the gilding, the eternal maxims engraved and carved ... The heart, instead, it satisfies grateful and moved by such Holiness here focused: Saint John Bosco, Saint Dominic Savio, Santa Maria Domenica Mazzarello! Don't miss the dungeons with the relics and the altar of the apparition. Exits in the courtyard of the oratory: among other things, gather in the Church of Saint Francis de Sales, where Don Bosco surprises Domenico in Ecstasy before the Tabernacle; where the exit where Don Bosco performed the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves. Put almost any time in the morning since the dawn, then at Vespers and at night; ability to always confessing generously insured!

  • The basilica is very impressive and the ceilings are great but the walls are heavy, too Baroque, too enriched with Brown marble. The chandeliers do not help to raise our eyes to heaven that is crushed by so much heaviness. Pass side altars that recall the story of Don Bosco and the Salesians

  • If you can't beat the Turin Basilica di Maria Ausiliatrice. Obviously the spirituality. inner peace and tranquillity envelops you physical is without debate. But even those who don't find this know that this is a grandiose work even just architecturally. If you are interested in art you'll be sure to draw the right conclusions in order to admire both the inside and the outside.

  • 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.
