Possibly one of the cosiest churches you will find . very helpful workers there encouraging you to look at the other chapels behind the main part of the church . magnificent ceiling frescoes decorate this church. It is a Baroque church that is detailed to perfection , buzzing with worshipers and a great feeling of warmth lies within.

Beautiful small baroque church with some parts that go back 1000 years (the bell tower for example). Nearby remains of the city Roman wall… A must see in Torino.

A wonderful example of baroque style in a church used by Turin people ; remembrer to see the "per grazia ricevuta" (grace granted) near the sacresty

My favurite Church in Turin. The deep devotion to Our Lady makes this to be the Patron of the town. In full Baroque style every day lot of pilgrims comes and pray

I've seen quite a number of churches throughout France and Italy, and I'd prefer to rate each on its own merit rather than in comparison to others. That being said, this one is worth the visit. It is pretty, and as previously mentioned is laid out in a very nontraditional manner. That being said, I loathe when churches have gates... More

Sometimes the objective assessment is coloured by the expectation. Earlier in our holiday we were in Milan and went to the duomo,I have to say it was every bit as good as we hoped it would be. When in Turin we saw a lot of churches some very good,late on we visited this basilica which though described as much loved... More

This was a wonderful little church, with an unusual set of oval areas. While we were there a service was proceeding, so we didn't manage to look around as much as we would have liked. Still, it was extremely interesting to see the silver Madonna with a gold crown. Overall, very well worth the visit if you are anywhere near... More

don't forget to take a quick tour of the right wings (about 30 meteres at the right of the entrance) to see all the grazie (paintings made by people who thanks the Madonna for being survived a dangerous situation)

This must be the most unusually shaped church we have visited. You enter in the middle of a longish oval and then move forward into a hexagonal, marble-clad sanctum. There's a sunken chapel on the south side with framed military epaulettes on the walls above it. Don't miss the votive pictures in other areas to the right of the alter.... More

Although there are many churches in Turino, Consolata is the sort of "home church" that everyone goes to when the going gets tough. We happened to be there at a time when the statue of Mary and Jesus was ready to be paraded through the streets. The "float" and the high alter were decorated and on high display. Mass was... More
