About
This was the first “home” of the Holy Shroud after its arrival from Chambéry. San Lorenzo has an extraordinary cupola (completed in 1680) designed by Guarino Guarini and exemplifies the baroque style. The Duke Emanuele Filiberto had the church dedicated to the Saint after the victory of the Battle of San Quintino. In piazza Castello.

This was the church where the shroud was located before it was moved to the Reale Palace. No sign to show where it was once placed.
Would have been a nice visit to a quiet church but for a tour guide who spoke to her group in the church, oblivious to the silence signs.

Every inch decorated with gold, marble or frescoes. Fit for a royal. You can comfortably see everything from the benches.

We stopped to see this church on a recent visit to Turin. It was an interesting and lovely church, but one of the more interesting things is an exhibit featuring a replica of the famous shroud of Turin. This was fascinating to see. If you have a chance when you visit Turin, going to this church is worthwhile.

Like the Royal Palace, there are better Churches in Turin. Not open all the time and so were fortunate to see inside.

Located exactly on the corner just before hitting the piazza in Via Palazzo di Citta - some wonderful architecture and beautiful paintings - the main altar - gilded - was being restored - it is very much worth viewing and it takes about 15 - 20 mins

Fantastic example baroque architecture. It is unique that you experience it in normal light so it is a little dark but and every turn you will be amazed it is worth the stop without a doubt

This is indeed an excellent example of baroque architecture. But without all too many little angels or gold dazzling you. Okay, you can sit here for half an hour and still discover new elements. But on the other hand: as it is a quite compact hall: you can sit here on the same spot and still suck up the atmosphere and see everything. So as an introduction to baroque (opposite to some of the Roman or Tuscan churches) this certainly helps.
It is an enjoyable structure that, without artificial light, gives you brightness as well as requires you to look good and study the elements. Okay, no famous artists have made a masterpiece here. But that also limits the amount of tourists and groups going around. Enjoy it on your own at you

This church is merged so well with the surrounding buildings, although it is located at one of the corners of Piazza Castello, that we passed by its entrance several times and never noticed it. The interior is stunning - marble columns, beautiful murals, ornate chapels, the high altar which dates back to the late 17th century and the inner structure of the inside of the cupola that represents an inverted pentagon. It is a small church and it gives a specific sense of intimity.

Although I had read on trip advisor that it was very easy to overlook this church I didnt notice it till the last day of our visit to Turin. The view of the royal palace is so impressive its really easy to miss that small unimposing blue door to the left . At first we were hesitant to investigate as there were no indications on the outside as to what beauty there is inside. So glad we visited this compact but impressive church the original home of the shroud. The cupola is stunning and the small room with display of a copy of shroud an added bonus.
