A very complex architecture, with various spaces and chapels, lavishly decorated. You can easily spend a couple of hours wandering around.

if you like interesting churches, that are usually open and have much to see, go here. amazing baroque altar, ex-votives thanking the Madonna for saving someone, these in the form of wonderful naive pictures of the relevant scene, ie a tram colliding with a pedestrian, wartime bombing, an exploding bed warmer (NB the victims survive!). Columns covered with framed hearts, medals and thanks for protection in time of war etc. The church is a real treasure. afterwards cross the Piazza and have a coffee in Bicerin.

For anyone who appreciates seeing the incredible imaginative power of mature Baroque architecture beyond the super-rich opulence of decoration, the interior of this church will be a delight. (Nota Bene, at the time of writing, it is illustrated with a picture of a completely different church at the Tripadvisor.) The surrounding of the church is one of the places in Turin where one feels that history is not in the past, it is very much part of the present. And the very rich hot chocolate with cream that has been served in the Caffe Al Bicerin opposite the church in the Piazza della Consolata since 1763 is a real treat.

Church is poorly decorated. There are much better churches in town. Has to be visited if you are longer in Turin as one of the minor attractions.

The La Consolata Basilica is out of the prime tourist area, secluded in tiny streets of residential central Torino. It was very close to our hotel, so it was the first thing we visited. Both, the exterior and interior will impress you. The exterior is a mixture of three styles from different eras - the oldest Romanesque bell tower, the Baroque domes and neo classical entrance. The interior is mind blowing, all in marble with unbelievable artwork and so rich in details, one of the best I've ever seen. DO come visit - you wont regret it.
