A small but interesting church. This is the site of the Shroud of Turin and the venue makes much of this connection. The shroud itself is NOT on view.

The cathedral itself is pretty run-of-the-mill inside, but its bell tower and the square outside make the small complex very attractive.

I visited the Chapel while staying with family in Turin. It's quite understated, a pretty Church certainly, but not possessed of the pomp and circumstance one might expect from the home of one of the most important artifacts of Christianity. I must say I liked the informality and found it welcoming.
You don't see the shroud of course. It is only rarely on display and even then is such an important event that it is announced by the Vatican. Wherever you stand on the authenticity debate this is an amazing cloth. It has been the subject of veneration for centuries if not millennia. It has survived fires and floods and to this day no one can tell you how it was created. It is in a fireproof box, covered by a sheet and residing behind a glass screen. Still it is a very fine place to say a quiet prayer. By the way if you visit the Palace next door and stand in the chapel there with it's amazing dome, you will find that you are behind the altar of this current home of the shroud. A glass window allows you to look down from behind the altar at the full length of the Church.
Anyway an interesting place to visit and a must see for Christians and especially Catholics.

I thought I was going to be very, very spiritually moved, but ended up feeling a little letdown. Yes, I was prepared to not see the actual Holy Shroud. But, the replica displayed was just of Jesus’ face, while the actual Shroud is of his entire body. I’m not sure if my scientific readings before hand lessened the religious impact I thought would happen. A main disproving scientific explanation (carbon dating) places the Shroud around the year 1350? But, then again, there are about 3 or 4 scientific findings that place the Shroud around the time of Jesus. (I.e. cement found only during Jesus’ time, coins over the eyes only during Jesus’ time, etc.etc. ). I am not sure of the official stance from our Pope and the religious community at The Vatican?

The church is not super opulent or special. There are some interesting art works in the church. It is probably best know for housing the shroud of Turin. There is an overly large replica that people go to worship. Would not go out of my way to visit.

Plainer center nave of the church..with arched
aisle sections adorned . The cupola is blocked off behind the lectern area. You can access from the piazza castelle . Gold huge organ in right transcript
And the shroud of Turin on other side along w larger reproductions so you can view better along a sitting area
To contemplate the shroud symbolism.

The Chapel of The Holy Shround is the place where the Shroud is shown when exposed (announced by the Pope every several years). The Chapel cannot be visited separately. You have to buy tickets to the Museums/Palace and the Chapel ends the tour. The Cathedral is free to visit (also separately) and this is where the Shroud is located (still not visible, but you can stay around). Both the Chapel and the Cathedral are connected, but the passage is not to be used by regular visitors. The Cathedral posseses also the relics of S. Giovanni

What a sight. Having seen so many Churches in Napoli, this is similar- so grand.
It's well worth a visit, as they all are.
