If you only visit one church do not miss this one - and chocolate cafe outside

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... read more

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

This is not the most famous church in Turin, but it is one of the most spectacular- in the sense of spectacle indeed. It is a wild mix of architectural styles from part of an ancient Roman wall, a Romanesque bell-tower, baroque domes, two porticos, and a charming gallery, unfortunately used for a car park. Nonetheless, see it you must.

The interior of this church is so beautiful. It is not a majestic basilica church, but became our favorite in Turin. Its location is on the edge of the Turin antique quarter across from the Al Bicerin, famous for coffee.

The sumptuous and varied interior is the latest in the extended history of this institution, with its origins dating back to the early centuries of Christianity. One of its treasures is a Marion icon to which miracles have been attributed. The central nave is wonderfully ornate, with super marble and other adornments. It ends in the exquisite altar area that... More

The splendour and elegance of this impressively decorated church is very well taken care of. It's glorious, overwhelming yet intimate and sacred. A true pearl.

there are alraedy some excellent reviews that go into details, so I'll sskip that and satuy on sensation. Well, it is a LOT to take in, so rich and so much history, but mostly remember that this is a church made for asking God something or thanking for something, so there are many 'offerte' and 'voti' and that is the...

I wasn't expecting to like this , since Guarini's original church has had several makeovers over the space of 300 years and been pretty much obliterated. The outer chapels and decor are all late 19th early 20th century in faux Baroque style by Ceppi and Vandone - the latter best known for his Art Nouveau or Liberty style. There is... More
