Piazza San Carlo was designed by Carlo di Castellamonte in 1642 and completed in 1650. In the middle of the piazza you’ll find the equestrian statue of Emanuele Filiberto (known to all as “El Caval èd brons”), sculpted by Carlo Marocchetti in 1838. The porticoed buildings surrounding the piazza give space to numerous bars, cafes, and restaurants.

Spent a couple of hours here catching up with my son, whom I hadn't seen for some time. Luckily it was a lovely warm evening. The architecture is beautiful, as are most of the shares in Turin.

We love hanging around this place - our favourite in Turin. The nice, wide open spaces along with the shops & restaurants that border the square make it extra special. We have been here in the summer & winter ... always special and ever changing.

We have been to Torino many times and visiting Piazza San Carlo is always a treat. It's everything you would expect in a "city of kings,": churches, huge statues, shops and a feeling that you're not so big!

This is a great piazza with statue, churches, stores of big brands and restaurants. Here you can find the notorious Caffee Torino and the beautiful Chiesa di Santa Cristina.
