In my opinion, the most beautiful church in Torino. A veritable jewel. Be sure to look closely at the marble statues of the two queens of savoy, the lace work on their dresses is amazing, difficult to believe that it is cut from marble!

The view from the terrace in front of the church is nice, and is close to the center. The church is nice.

From outside doesn't look so special, then from the inside positive shock. the interior is decorated with many frescoes and saints who have been important throughout history. If you a christian religion fan it would be wonderful experience, but in any other case just average.

Very beautiful church. Unfortunately "Al Bicerin" the iconic coffee and chocolate house opposite the church was closed on the Sunday of our visit

Externally this looks like many other churches in the city - until you open the door. It is really ornate inside (quite a change from the austere cathedral) and well worth seeing. An added bonus is the El Bicerin is on the opposite side of the square

We found this almost by accident as it is not on the main suggested walking paths but well worth the walk . An amazing church with many hidden features.... There is also a famous chocolate cafe outside so make sure you go when it is open- closed 11:30 to about 16:30 i think.

Beautiful to enter and explore, unless you understand the history behind the church, it will be wasted, so prepare and research before you arrive to get the full value of the visit to this location.

Wow what a beautiful church, compact, domed ceilings, richly decorated with frescoes, marble and gold painted edging, on the outside painted in soft colours of white and beige, complete elegance. In the front yard you can see some remains of the old Roman city wall. The Basilica is located in the very small Piazza della Consolata which is also the... More

First of all, there are 2 kinds of people : the ones who have a good condition (like me, I thought) and the ones who don't. If you don't, take a taxi for sure to visit. It seems close to the centre (and actualy it is, 1 walked for about 1 hour to get there). If you are (or like... More
