We know Italy is full of magnificent churches and this is up there with the best. Set in a beautiful square both the exterior and interior are well worth your attention.

Both built in the 1600's, the two beautiful churches have come to represent, the the piazza S.Carlo they are on, one of the many symbols ot Turin, and adorn the piazza on its Western side. Cannot miss them.

Two almost identical churches, facing Piazza San Carlo, both built in XVII century. You won't miss them as you'll be walking thru Piazza San Carlo as one of the most important places in Turin.

Two small, but very richly decorated baroque churces. Definitely a must see, I popped in on my way to the Royal Palace.
