Actually walking around aimlessly and stumbled upon the duomo. Some very impressive side naves and a large last supper over the entry door. Shroud can't be seen but videos and brochures were cool. Couldn't help but buy the 3D post card...strange...to me anyway. Worth a stop. Ciao.

Although the shroud cannot be seen one should the Duomo of St John the Baptist in Turin.There is a beautiful 19th century Organ on the right of the main altar and beautiful paintings including a perfect copy of last supper with Jesus and the Apostles by Leonardo Da Vinci on the upper part at the back of the church.

This cathedral is beautiful! We were so excited to have the chance to see the Shroud of Turin, but one should know that it's kept in a temperature-regulated case that's kept covered. There are TV screens and printed photos of the shroud, which show great detail of the cloth - but we were a little disappointed, to be honest. Overall,... More

In the Quadrilatero area, close to the Porta Palatina, is where the Duomo di Torino e Cappella della Sacra Sindone lies. Arguably the most famous relic is kept here, away from the eyes of visitors. There is a bulletproof, humidity and temperature-controlled casket, keeping this relic, ready for display only rarely, for several weeks. There is, however, a replica hanging... More

This duomo closes to the public if i'm not mistake in the afternoon and open the doors again around 3pm. You will not see the Sacra Sindone, but still its a holy place to visit.

This is the church where the shroud is kept under a casket. It is at left side in the corner. Other than that, it is really nothing much.

A large part of the interior is currently closed for renovations, so it appeared rather crowded and sparsely decorated. I suspect it will be much more impressive when the renovations are completed.

We went to this sacred church where the Holy Shroud was kept. The Holy Shroud was not for public display when we visited, but there is a video showing how the Shroud was used to wrap Jesus and therefore some marks on the Shroud. It is a good to show our daughter of how Jesus sacrificed himself for us instead... More

We visited in July 2016, and enjoyed this sacred place. I wanted to post the review to alert people to the fact that the tomb of the Blessed Pier Giorgo Frassati is also here -- we missed it, and now want to return! It is located close to the Holy Shroud. If you are not already familiar with the Blessed... More

This Cathedral abounds with gold and glitter and extraordinary art works.The Holy Shroud really is kept here in the lower tribune section of the Royal Tribune. It is conserved in a glass and aluminium urn five metres long and protected by a large casket covered by red embroidered cloth. There is so much to see here, but check closing times.... More
