This is a very large and impressive church in the center of Torino and very much worthwhile a visit when you are in Torino. The silence within the church is refreshing when you are in the buzzing city center.

This is impressively imposing at street level with monumental columns and large facade. We visited early morning just after opening, before any ceremony and with no other visitors. This enhanced the vastness of the interior and the resultant peacefulness. Only the portion of nave towards the altar had seating in place opening up the area. The Baroque ornamentation is lovely,...

Both Juvarra and Guarini (probably) had a hand in this, so you might expect it to be good, and it doesn't disappoint. The decor is relatively restrained , and has not had the clean and polish most other churches here have had, and has a faded neglected air about it. Nevertheless it is still an immense, imposing and atmospheric space,... More

Found this church by accident- from the rooftop of the palace as it white dome stands out. As well as having a real nice atmosphere (esp on a hot day) the front right altar has an incorrupt body of a saint who started the Turin Branch of the Oratarians.

The Church of San Filippo Neri was designed by Filippo Juvarra in 1716. It has a very impressive facade. The interior is a little drab but there are several altars with good paintings. The ceiling lacks color.

Frankly, this might seem a a low profile church, but just looking at the pictures it soon becomes clear that it is not so. The facade looks beautiful outside a greek temple because of its columns, the intent is immense and without a doubt I think it is one of the largest churches in the city. Advise... to visit even...

Quite unpretentious for a church here and has been tastefully built and is not "over the top" like some. The marble pillars and particularly the towering altar are very impressive and have been made out of good quality product. It has also been well restored and is well worth a visit by the faithful and those whose interests lie in... More

Quiet place to have a look at this wonderful church located next to the egyptian museum. Its a church so be quiet and dress modestly. Careful not to go near the altars as they have an alarm.
