We hadn't planned to come to this church - we were on our way to Al Bicerin. We were so pleased to have been diverted. A fascinating church and definitely worth a visit.

Consolata is deeply rooted in the heart of Torino people . It is a 17 century basilica with its history and bell tower dated back to the 14th century.

Towards a coffee Bicerin at Piazza della Consolata I accidentally discovered an extraordinarily beautiful mini basilica, the Santuario della Consolata. Two gems in a beautiful square. I was very much impressed by the interior; splendour, warm, but not too rich. A hidden gem, a bonus on this picturesque square!

This is really difficult to rate. We took public transportation to the train. The experience getting to the train will always be a highlight for me as we got on the wrong tram and then had to get off and reconnect. But the local italian speaking people were so darn helpful and charming I was glad we messed up. Anyways,... More

You won't miss this church as its exterior stands out on the piazza Castello. The hexagonal dome was gorgeous and yet special, the ornate interior was absolutely magnificent!!! A must visit when in Turin.

Really interesting trip up to the Basilica on the 'Tramway'. Leaves from Sassi on the 61 bus route, - nice little cafe and restaurant next to the station. Going up, the tram leaves on the hour, (takes about 20 minutes) and comes down again on the half hour. Little bar at the top and a bar/restaurant next to the Basilica.... More

The church is lovely to look at from the river in the evening, particularly in the winter when it's all lit up, but is nothing spectacular from the inside.

Beautiful basilica, love the ornate interior. Mass held every hour on the hour. Great little gift shop in the back, to purchase medals, rosaries and other nice gifts. Thanks.

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!
