This is a unique and majestic church. It’s sort of like Turin’s Pantheon — it’s a Neoclassical building that commemorates Napoleon’s defeat and Victor Emmanuel’s subsequent return to power. There were some people praying when I looked inside in late afternoon so remember that it...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.

I didn’t get to see the church inside but it was worth the visit seeing it only outside. After climbing the steps the view is fantastic. Very unique setup next to the river Po.

I visited this church on a bright October afternoon with the sun almost setting. Others have commented on the interior of the church and I will merely say that the view from the exterior is superb and well worth the climb. There are signs for...More

This is a beautiful church which is slightly raised so you can see over a little of Turin. The inside has a beautiful dome and it is well worth a visit.
