Imposing church overlooking River Po
Jul 2020 • Solo
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.

Impressive architecture
Jan 2020
An impressive Neoclassical architecture inspired by Roma's Parthenon, overlooking the river Po and the Venetto square. The interior is also beautiful.

Classic, beautiful and in great location
May 2019 • Friends
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.

Must See

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.

Stunning both inside & outside
Apr 2018 • Couples
It is hard to not admire this stunning Church from the outside with its brilliant location just over a bridge. Please also go inside - it is wonderful and the dome is like the pantheon in Rome.

A historically important church...
Oct 2018 • Friends
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.

Exciting wedding at Gran Madre Di Dio
Sep 2018 • Couples
We went to see the church purely because of the film THE ITALIAN JOB.
What a great surprise to see a wedding group on the steps just as it was when the 3 red white and blue minis drove past a wedding nearly 50 years ago.
It is a little lovely little church in a grand setting. We really enjoyed the hour we spent there. Unfortunately afterwards we were ripped off in the CAFE PLAZA. just up and to the right of the church. We were charged DOUBLE the price for wine compared to our upmarket hotel in Turin city centre. Watch out as no prices to view!,
