The cathedral, built in 1498, is a fine example of Renaissance architecture. One of the most famous medieval relics - the Turin Shroud - is kept here.

The Holly Shroud is kept in a big casket in a chapel dedicated to it. The Cathedral is a big church, with a majestic interior, not too ornamented. There is a small book store with books presenting the Shroud's history and flyers in many languages.

You can't actually see the shroud, a picture of the impression of the face hangs above it. It is housed in a box behind glass in what looks like the Royal Box at an Opera House. There is no admission charge to the cathedral or...More
