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

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.
