A beautiful church in Torino
Sep 2018 • Family
Chiesa di San Filippo Neri is a neoclassical church located in the center of Turin, close to the Museo Egizio (Egiptian Museum, in English). It is a nice and big church. Interesting, not more. In the average.

ENORMOUS CHURCH
Feb 2018 • Solo
This church is so big the pews inside only come half way back from the altar. It has huge alcoves on each side filled with pillars, paintings and statues. The altar has a large centrepiece with beautiful mini balconies to each side encasing the organ pipes.

Baroque style church
Feb 2018 • Solo
This is a baroque style Roman Catholic Church actively used in the center of Turin. There are no tourist services that I could find, which kind of makes a visit more authentic. This is actually the largest church in Turin. A lot of impressive paintings inside.

..another beautiful old Baroque church..
Dec 2016 • Friends
... where I remember, many years ago, listening to Haendel's Messia in all its splendor.. I saw it again more recently, as on a cold winter night last December, I entered and realized that I was the only person there.. while organ music from the loudspeakers was filling the thin air.. magic..

Quick visit to this church
Aug 2017 • Friends
We didn't find out the history of this church and there weren't many plaques to tell a lot. The ones that were there ( see the picture) were in Italian . Inside was very pretty but didn't explore much because mass was starting. Organ music was very beautiful.

Nice find
Jun 2017 • Couples
This is a nice find in Torino. It is a very old church with a long an interesting history. They have a pamphlet in English, and other languages, in the back of the church. They are easy to read and follow the history and layout of the church well. There is a also a multi lingual video you can watch for free. Impressive in that is is synced with the lighting. Enjoy

One of the largest churches in Torino
Aug 2016
This is a very large and impressive church in the center of Torino and very much worthwhile a visit when you are in Torino. The silence within the church is refreshing when you are in the buzzing city center.

Tranquil in the early morning
Mar 2016 • Couples
This is impressively imposing at street level with monumental columns and large facade.

We visited early morning just after opening, before any ceremony and with no other visitors. This enhanced the vastness of the interior and the resultant peacefulness. Only the portion of nave towards the altar had seating in place opening up the area.

The Baroque ornamentation is lovely, without being overly flamboyant. Many of the columns and arches were festooned with dark blue draping giving a very attractive effect. The altar area is gorgeous and the altarpiece was discreetly veiled. The dome is beautiful and ornamental.

One feature that is a little understated is the stations of the cross, but still very effective. A fine organ and choir area is to be seen, no doubt resonating throughout the space during sung ceremonies and performances.

A huge imposing space
Apr 2016 • Solo
Both Juvarra and Guarini (probably) had a hand in this, so you might expect it to be good, and it doesn't disappoint. The decor is relatively restrained , and has not had the clean and polish most other churches here have had, and has a faded neglected air about it. Nevertheless it is still an immense, imposing and atmospheric space, all the better for the fact that only about a third of the floor area has seating, so it feels even bigger than otherwise. Very meditative.
