Our first sight of this dominant church was in the distance after entering Piazza Vittorio Veneto. We looked forward to visiting it. It is impressively set on top of a series of steps. From the doorway there are fine views over the river and onto...More

Gosh, what a disappointment. We could see nothing of interest inside this bland interior. There are so many more interesting churches and buildings in Turin.

Inspiring architecture and interior of a magnificent church. Great to see events such as music here too. The surrounding neighborhood is fabulous too.
