The cathedral, built in 1498, is a fine example of Renaissance architecture. One of the most famous medieval relics - the Turin Shroud - is kept here.

The Cathedral in Turin is not the largest or most beautiful, in fact it's pretty average as cathedrals go. But it does house the Turin Shroud, which is definitely worth visiting even if you are not religious. It is a fascinating object with an interesting...More

Beautiful cathedral with a very moving display of The Shroud of Turin. An interesting video is available in many languages right next to the Shroud. You just have to select your language to see the short video. Worth the visit.

Something not to miss for the faithful, the cathedral is the sanctuary of the shroud reputed to have been used to wrap the body of Jesus Christ. The Cathedral itself is one of many magnificent religious buildings around the city

you might as well visit the cathedral of the holy shroud. This month the Pope is visiting. Don't imagine that will settle the dispute over whether this shroud is authentic. When I visited last winter the interior of the cathedral was itself shrouded in mystery....More

The cathedral is very simple by any and especially Italian standards. Not really worth the visit specially as they have been renovating most of it since the fire of 1997... The shroud itself is not on display, they say it is stored beneath an altar...More
