This was the first “home” of the Holy Shroud after its arrival from Chambéry. San Lorenzo has an extraordinary cupola (completed in 1680) designed by Guarino Guarini and exemplifies the baroque style. The Duke Emanuele Filiberto had the church dedicated to the Saint after the victory of the Battle of San Quintino. In piazza Castello.

To make the most you would need a guide or a tour where they could explain all the details about it. May be the best one in Turin.

Baroque church with no typical facade - an add-on to the Royal Palace. The church was built in XVII century and really worth to see.

This place seemed difficult to find by map and yet is in the corner of the huge Piazza Reale/Piazza Castello. The exterior is unimposing apart from the attractive dome but the inside is fantastic. The decorations and the gold are amazing and the stunning domes...More

Amazing and overwhelming decoration inside, but you'd never guess from the outside. Historic and architecturally important. You'll just sit back and stare.

Often ignored because of the church's lack of a facade but let me just say that you're in for a treat. It has one of (if not THE) most beautiful domes of Turin. If you go in the spring and/or fall equinox you'll be able...More

Entered this church as I thought this was the Shroud Church and was mistaken. The inside is small but the interior inside is nice.

This beautifully ornate church is just off Piazza Castello. Pop in if you're in the vicinity. Entry is free.

This unassuming and easy to miss church next to the central square in Turin has really impressive interior and cupola by the local 17th century architect Guarino Guarini (don't miss his other buildings in Turin).

We stopped there on a Sunday afternoon, there was a choir singing, few people around, the church is a little gem in the middle of Torino. The ceiling and the dome are mesmerising, small, with several altars all finely decorated. IF you are in Torino,...More
