Definitely not the biggest church but interior is immaculate. I think what gives this impression is the extensive use of gold guiding on everything.

Glorious over the top Baroque with lots of marble, gilt and detail. Do look at the small paintings commissioned to thank the saints for help in illness or after accidents.

Do you know what? I have been in many churches, basilicas and cathedrals worldwide, always with the critical eye not religious but always with an artistic judgment, soon as I walked inside this church, I felt a sense of wonder that I thought ..

From outside doesn't look special at all, however it is worth a visit as the interior is absolutely amazing and rather circular shape than a typical rectangular church. Highly recommended!!!

We were advised to visit this church by one of the room attendants at Palazzo Reale and we were extremely glad that we took her advice. It is difficult to describe this church but it is such and unusual shape and stunningly decorated that it is a must to visit.

Situated at about 600mt on sea level this Basilica was built in remembrance of a victory of the Piemontese Army against the French. From the square you can enjoy a stunning panorama of the City and the Alps.

A short walk from Palazzo Madama - don't miss this church. It has a circular shape and is highly decorated - just beautiful.
