This church may be small, but it makes up in detail and uniqueness! I have been to many churches in Europe and this was like no other. I highly recommend this very cool church.

What a nice surprise .... What a wonderful surprise . A great Baroque Church . Very nice inside and out. But in all honesty the inside is the selling point

our group ventured up here for a lunch get together. It was more of an olive oil competition than a lunch. Each of our Italian friends brought olive oil that was the best in Italy. Not sure who won, I think we all did. One exchange between a Canadian friend and an Italian friend was classic. At the conclusion of... More

I came across this beautiful basilica by case. I didn't plan to go and see it but once i was in there I felt like in paradise. It a Baroque church, really rich with gold details. Lots of different types of marble. The atmosphere inside is supernatural.

Not to be missed. All I can say is "wow" , stunning. If you are visiting the museum of The Shroud , please take time to visit this it is only a few minutes walk and then pop over the courtyard for a coffee.

Great view of Torino! I went on a trip back in 2005. I remember the windy view from the courtyard in front of the Basilica ... it was very nice. The basilica itself is quite nice as well!

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
