I recommend a visit to this sanctuary although out if the way from city centre. On entering this church you are taken up by the richness of silver and gold that this building has to offer. Worth a visit!

I liked this church the most in Torino. The statue of Our Lady of Consolation was still on display surrounded with flowers since they just had the procession to celebrate her. I liked the golden fluorescence that emanated from the lights and how it complements the gold ornate frames. It felt grandiose considering that the exterior is very unassuming.

This is a church and not an especially beautiful one, I don't think. It's famous for the tombs it houses of the Savoy monarchs (and I don't find tombs appealing). It's also famous in Italy for being the site of the plane crash that killed the championship soccer team (again, not sure why most foreigners will be moved by that... More

I've seen many baroque churches over the years in Italy. And I love baroque. The inside of this Sanctuary took my breath away! A wonderful masterpiece of baroque expression of exaltation to God. It took me a few minutes walking to get there from the Cathedral area, but well worth the extra time to get there! Just amazing! Hope I... More

..Interesting church, with multiple architectural signatures and a multitude of styles... from baroque to neoclassical, going through rococò, this church is one one best examples of the piousness of the Turinese, particularly the ones from the aristocracy... ..interestingly, the church sits on a small square that hosts both the world famou " 'l Bicerin" and a delightful old fashoned herb...

Indescribable church, architecture and art. Good to visit even if you're tired of churches. From the outside it is not that impressive...but enter the basilica and...WOW!
