The church is an eclectic collection of architecture, and includes portions of an ancient Roman wall, a Romanesque bell-tower, a baroque set of domes, almost Byzantine, sheltering a gothic icon, with two porticos, one of which has Neoclassic severity. Don't miss it!.

A little off the main tourist trail, this is an astonishingly beautiful Basilica. .. with very complex ornate structures, decorative features and religious icons. There were no other visitors when we were there, so we could explore and appreciate the beauty without the usual crowds....More

A sturdy church from the outside, the inside surprises with its beauty. The alter, in particular, is noteworthy with the icon of the Virgin of the Consolation. A worthy stop in Turin!

Walking up to the Santuario Basilica is a must when visiting Turin. It's a nice walk up to the Basilica and a beautiful view overlooking the whole city.

When we got in we expected just another church, but it was not the case. It is master piece of architecture, but at the same time a very relaxing espiritual place. Not to be missed!

Beh essendo un Santuario, e' logico che e' bene entrare in condizioni civili, niente pantaloncini e scollature succinte, per il resto tutto ammesso
