This is a nice find in Torino. It is a very old church with a long an interesting history. They have a pamphlet in English, and other languages, in the back of the church. They are easy to read and follow the history and layout...More

This is a very large and impressive church in the center of Torino and very much worthwhile a visit when you are in Torino. The silence within the church is refreshing when you are in the buzzing city center.

This is impressively imposing at street level with monumental columns and large facade. We visited early morning just after opening, before any ceremony and with no other visitors. This enhanced the vastness of the interior and the resultant peacefulness. Only the portion of nave towards...More

Both Juvarra and Guarini (probably) had a hand in this, so you might expect it to be good, and it doesn't disappoint. The decor is relatively restrained , and has not had the clean and polish most other churches here have had, and has a...More

The Church of San Filippo Neri was designed by Filippo Juvarra in 1716. It has a very impressive facade. The interior is a little drab but there are several altars with good paintings. The ceiling lacks color.

Quite unpretentious for a church here and has been tastefully built and is not "over the top" like some. The marble pillars and particularly the towering altar are very impressive and have been made out of good quality product. It has also been well restored...More

Quiet place to have a look at this wonderful church located next to the egyptian museum. Its a church so be quiet and dress modestly. Careful not to go near the altars as they have an alarm.
