This is an absolutely stunning building, outside and inside. It appears that one or two previous reviewers didn't actually visit this location! The detail is awesome with an unusual layout with several small chapels around the outside. Of all the beautiful buildings we saw while in Italy, this one was undoubtedly one of the more memorable. There's a fascinating story... More

Travelled to the basilica today, sun was a little hazy so the view was not fantastic, but the journey on the train and the all round experience when you got there was something that should not be missed if you come to Turin

I have to say that it wasn't all I expected. It took us so long to get there from where we were situated that when we got there finally it was a bit of a let down. That's not to say its not beautiful, it really is (pictures included). We visited the crypts underneath and it also didn't impress me.... More

excellent trip via a very old train..... welll worth a visit, the basilica could use some money being spent on it, the cafe bar is limited so eat and drink before you go at the very quaint miniture station.

Unlike the larger cathedrals, this basilica is fairly plain on the outside. Inside it is astounding. Artwork and statuary occupies nearly every wall and ceiling space. The docents were very friendly and eager to help. There was no charge to enter and photography was allowed.

Even for those who, like me, might have overdosed a bit on cathedrals in Europe, this one is a must see. Much different from the usual medieval Gothic style and the sort you see in Florence. Well worth the visit.

Well worth a stop if you're in the area but not worth more than a walk to see it. Very unusual inside with lots of hidden alcoves, art and sculpture.

One of the most important churches in Turin. An unusual layout as well as many interesting things to see inside. Worth stopping off at while you're walking in the centre of the city.

Didn't dislike anything actually, but by the same token there was nothing very special about it. It does however have an original projectile (musket ball, I think) from the 1706 war embedded in one of the outside walls, which I suppose is kinda interesting.
