Across Vittorio Emanuele I bridge from Piazza Vittorio Veneto in the centre of Turin is the church of Gran Madre di Dio. The church is of Neoclassic style, created by architect Ferdinando Bonsignore and was completed in 1831.

The building is imposing with its location overlooking River Po. Due to strict Covid restrictions during my visit in early July 2020 I was unable to go inside and explore the church any further.

In the Turin downtown there are a lot of attractions and monuments. I thin that the Gran Madre Church is on of the most important.

Well worth the walk down Via Po to cross Napoleons bridge and arrive at this very simple church with a dome very like the Pantheon in Rome.There are wonderful photographic opportunities from the steps of the church and you can see the Alps on a clear day.I wish that I had visited at sunset.

Having seen The Italian Job so many times we visited Turin to get to see some of the locations for the film. This church is where the wedding scene took place. Awesome.
Terrific views of Turin and the river Po from the top of the steps and the church is magnificent as well!

Our first sight of this dominant church was in the distance after entering Piazza Vittorio Veneto. We looked forward to visiting it.

It is impressively set on top of a series of steps. From the doorway there are fine views over the river and onto the great Piazza in front.

It was interesting to learn it was commissioned in 1814 to celebrate the return of the King to the throne after defeating the French. It was finally blessed for use in 1831.

The facade and shape has echoes of the Roman Pantheon. The interior is lovely. Following the architecture, seating is arranged circularly. The altar is flanked by two columns. Above it is a fine Madonna and Child statue set against golden sun rays.

Numerous statues are placed in the circular wall. Another outstanding feature is the decorative dome ceiling with the light filled centre surrounded by decorative octagonal configurations.

An impressive Neoclassical architecture inspired by Roma's Parthenon, overlooking the river Po and the Venetto square. The interior is also beautiful.

I cannot say what more I like about this Church. It's visible as far as from the Piazza Castello at the end of Via Po street, and best from the huge and beautiful Vittorio Veneto sq over the bridge.
Similar to that, the counter perspective from its stairs awards you with an excellent view of Po and downtown Torino.
The Church has a Classic columns facade with Rome Pantheon style dome. The interior will impress you as well, do visit.

This Church recalls the Pantheon architecture in Rome, and holds both historic and religious value. The design is fascinating both on the inside and outside.
Its location is also wonderful, facing a square and next to River Po.

Located on the other side of the Po River and facing Piazza Vittorio, one of the largest squares in Europe, through the homonymous bridge, this church, reminiscent of the Pantheon in Rome, was built to thank the Gran Madre, the mother of the Christ for the fall of Napoleon and the Restoration of the old powers, in this specific case the House of Savoy, that will end up ruling on the entire country of Italy some years later. Its imposing Neoclassical structure can be seen from piazza Castello, through the whole of via Po.
Definitely a must experience.
