For the "fans"

The dimensions of this santuario are quite impressive. You can see it from afar and will not really how big it is until you are standing in front of the main building. The building is quite recent, although from the outside that is less striking. The interior has a very modern feel and stunning acoustic. Next to the complex you have the house where Don Bosco was born, that can be visited.
From a tourist point of view it is not worth the detour. If you are a devoted christian, this is probably high on the to-do list when traveling to Piemonte.

So well known in Italy and not so much in the U.S. It was VERY interesting to learn about the life and heritage of this Italian holy man.

If you are at all familiar with this saint by all means do take the time and effort to visit its an opening window to a time gone by that otherwise is difficult to imagine.
The basilica is too modern for my taste but never overdone and still impresive

Amazing huge modern church, on hilltop 20 kms from Asti, 30 kms from Torino!
Only known to Italians? Don Bosco is Saint, helped children last century, born here, near Torino/Asti.

Cathedral-size church, two levels, both huge: upper for sundays and festivals, lower for every day. Both magnificent, modernist styles. No 'traditional' catholic grandeur or ornate style, very impressive simple style.

Don Bosco born here: very interesting museum of old house and museum of 19th century country life in Italy, well displayed.

No entry charges, contributions voluntary and good shop. Ample free parking.

Great views from church steps across Piedmonte hillside. Even good picnic site!

Very simple, very impressive! Not only for church-goers, a great visit, very tranquil place in typical Italian countryside!
