Surely one of the most beautiful basilicas ever seen. An amazing place of worship and baroque art. Place of repose of St Bosco.

It is not that big, but the beauty inside is fenomenal, well I was impressed. Not difficult to get there, tram or bus, it is very easy.

Check the mass schedule and arrive. The tour is free and it is given by one of the collaborators. You can see clothes from the Saint furniture and reliques. Inside the Basilica you can see Don Bosco itself and the tombs of Maria Mazarello and Domingo Savio.

Being an alumnus of Don Bosco School, the trip to the church in Turin was truly a memorable experience. The church itself was very beautiful. The Pinardi Chapel and Don Bosco Rooms were great too. But the best part was praying in front of the tomb of our father St. John Bosco. Was a truly fulfilling experience.!!

Beautiful Basilica, the Pinardi Chapel, the Body of Don Bosco, a small museum on the life of Don Bosco. For anyone interested in the life of St John Bosco or the driving force behind the Salesians of Don Bosco you can't do better than this. This place is for young and old alike. A real feeling of those who are... More

I knew that one day I was going to visit this Santuario. I went to a school that originated here in Turin, and made it all the way to South America. Nuns will talk about this place all the time. A lot of memories came back

This is where the relic of Don Bosco is and Saint Domenic Savio. The architecture is worth a trip for some great pictures you will look back on and for quiet reflection inside a beautiful church.

A beautiful church to visit, but unless you know what to look at, the visit will be wasted, so prepare and research before you arrive to get the full value of the visit to this location.
