Really incredible church. My favorite things are the "ex voto," or offerings in drawing form presented to the church as thanks for, primarily, the avoidance of some type of disaster (war injuries, tram accidents, illnesses). My favorite spot is in the back and to the left where the two statues of the praying queens (Princess Maria Theresa of Tuscany, Archduchess... More

This church is to me the most beautiful in town! I like the special atmosphere and the fact that it is not so overcrowded. There are so many nice things here to discover (and the combination of a visit with a bicerin in the famous coffee place across)

We visited this beautiful church during our recent one week stay in Turin. The church is magnificent and well kept. Particularly worthy of note are the crypt and wall of ex-votos to the Virgin for favors received or prayers heard. The staff was most helpful, and even hosted a small booth outside the church to answer questions, give directions and... More

Stunning, atmospheric basilica with beautiful madonna. Unusual style of crypt - you don't have to go down many steps.There are so many things to appreciate: the overall effect of the different coloured marble; the beautiful chapels on either side of the altar and the altarpiece itself which is a striking masterpiece.

The Basilica La Consolata was a surprise because of its oval architecture. There were beautiful marble columns and panels that decorated the church. The art work was superb too. This is definitely the most beautiful church in the city and my wife and I really enjoyed it.

Don't miss the opportunity to visit this wonderful church. Apart from its stunning Baroque interior, I defy anyone to remain unmoved by its atmosphere of sanctity. Unforgettable!

This church is magnificent and completely different from other churches you may already visited. It was build in the format of a flower. Really worth visiting it!

This church is richly decorated with all sorts of marble, frescos and pictures. Artwork and architecture is impressive. The crypt is mystical. Be sure to visit the room with paintings of 'thank you notes' for the received grace of surviving a perilous situation (grazia ricevuta)

The Basilica La Consolata is definitely worth a visit. I've been many times and every time I see something new - since it is so heavily decorated with marble, gold, paintings,.... Make sure to go to the confessions area. On the walls you will see hundreds of drawings, which show "miracles" that are attributed to the gold statute of the... More
