Beautiful Baroque church
Oct 2018 • Couples
This is a beautiful church built in the 1740’s in the baroque style. The most impressive part of the interior was the double vaulted dome with its painted ceilings.

There was a brochure in a rack when you enter which explains what you should notice during your visit.

It's bigger on the inside!
Apr 2016 • Couples
For such a small, simple looking church it seriously packs an amazing wow factor when you walk in. It's light and bright which is a complete contrast to to the Sant'Andrea church (one of the other main attractions of Bra).

A splendid example of italian barroque- a beautiful church- do not miss if you are in Bra

A small church, with a unusual design, full of barroque! Really nice. In Bra, do not miss it. It is probably the nicest monument in the city!

The most beautiful monument in Bra
Jan 2015 • Business
This church can be easily defined the most beautiful monument in Bra. The architect Bernardo Antonio Vittone, that one of the most important artists of the Rococo in Piedmont, has built it. Around the middle of the eighteenth century, Vittone has performed many interventions into the borders of what was then the Kingdom of Savoy (so, for example, has also worked in Nice); but only in a few cases he has created architectural works from scratch.
Santa Chiara in Bra is one of these works. Featuring a central plan, the church is covered by a complex dome, very elaborate, which has the effect of creating a play of light and dark, then to make the interior of the church very airy.
A visit to this landmark is indeed to be accomplished by those who pass even hastily in Bra. Starting from the Piazza del Duomo (where also the Town Hall is, another building to which Vittone worked), "Via Barbacana" lets get to the church by walking less than five minutes
