This church is so big the pews inside only come half way back from the altar. It has huge alcoves on each side filled with pillars, paintings and statues. The altar has a large centrepiece with beautiful mini balconies to each side encasing the organ...More

This is a baroque style Roman Catholic Church actively used in the center of Turin. There are no tourist services that I could find, which kind of makes a visit more authentic. This is actually the largest church in Turin. A lot of impressive paintings...More

We didn't find out the history of this church and there weren't many plaques to tell a lot. The ones that were there ( see the picture) were in Italian . Inside was very pretty but didn't explore much because mass was starting. Organ music...More

This is a nice find in Torino. It is a very old church with a long an interesting history. They have a pamphlet in English, and other languages, in the back of the church. They are easy to read and follow the history and layout...More

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...More

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...More

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.
