We went to this sacred church where the Holy Shroud was kept. The Holy Shroud was not for public display when we visited, but there is a video showing how the Shroud was used to wrap Jesus and therefore some marks on the Shroud. It is a good to show our daughter of how Jesus sacrificed himself for us instead... More

We visited in July 2016, and enjoyed this sacred place. I wanted to post the review to alert people to the fact that the tomb of the Blessed Pier Giorgo Frassati is also here -- we missed it, and now want to return! It is located close to the Holy Shroud. If you are not already familiar with the Blessed... More

This Cathedral abounds with gold and glitter and extraordinary art works.The Holy Shroud really is kept here in the lower tribune section of the Royal Tribune. It is conserved in a glass and aluminium urn five metres long and protected by a large casket covered by red embroidered cloth. There is so much to see here, but check closing times.... More

The Shroud of Turin is located here. It's a must visit for any Christian when visiting Turin. The Holy Shroud is stored in bullet-proof, fire-proof and climate controlled vault. Real shroud is not on display. It gets displayed very rarely, once in many years for few weeks only.

There wouldn't be much reason to visit this cathedral except it's the home of the Turin Shroud. You can’t see the original, of course, but a copy of the "face" image from the cloth is on permanent display to the left of the altar and you do get to see the casket it is reputed to be in. There's a... More

A solemn visit in June 2015 to see the Shroud of Turin which is rarely on display for public viewing. The sacred shroud gave us the chills and reminder of Jesus's sacrifice for us.

Lovely Cathedral and of course famous as the home of the Shroud of Turin. Theres a video you can watch and see pictures of the shroud and hear about it. Not a big Cathedral compared to others in other cities. Theres a small shop to buy gifts/souvenirs.

We knew we wouldn't be lucky enough to see the Shroud of Turin, but we thought we would see a copy. Instead, we saw many video projectors playing a short film in different languages explaining all about the Shroud. A caretaker even asked us where we were from, and then played the video in English. We visited twice. The first... More

This small cathedral is located behind the main Piazza in Turin - go through the archway at the left hand end of the Piazza as you face the palace. It is tucked away behind the main buildings. It is free to enter. Ask the guides to put on the video in English if you don't speak Italian - it explains... More

Average cathedral. The shroud of Turin is on display (no need to line up or buy tickets) so it is the main draw to this church.
