Not the biggest and certainly not the most impressive, the Duomo church is still well worth seeing and contains a replica of the famous shroud. Free to visit, you should also take in the Diocese museum and tower next door, for which there is a...More

An interesting piece of history, The Shroud of Turin, is housed here. Worth the visit for the shroud but the church is not anything out of the ordinary in Italy.

The main reason to visit this church is to see where the alleged Shroud of Jesus Christ is housed. There is a special side chapel that has this hroud behind a glass window. The last it was displayed was in 2015. This is a catholic...More

It is a smaller cathedral than what you would expect for a city the size of Turin. It backs on to the Royal Palace and seems diminished by comparison. The exterior and facade are not remarkable and are somewhat plain. Interior decoration is good in...More

I also just walked in. I spent a day in Turin (took the high speed train from Milan) and got to the chapel later in the afternoon. It's not far from the Museo Egizio.

No, there is no ticket to enter the Cathedral unlike in some Duomos in Italy. Also, the Shroud is in the left side, near the Altar as you walk in, from the front doors. This is an old yet beautiful and very solemn church.
