“Embedded projectile”

Santuario Basilica La Consolata
Ranked #9 of 405 things to do in Turin
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Didn't dislike anything actually, but by the same token there was nothing very special about it.
It does however have an original projectile (musket ball, I think) from the 1706 war embedded in one of the outside walls, which I suppose is kinda interesting.

Wonderful church to be seen inside. Not to miss if you visit Turin. It is a very loved church from Turin's people.

I have seen so many churches in my life, and thought, that there were no surrisesleft, and yet La Basilica was something I had neverseen before. Absolutely splendid and reathtakingly beautiful.

This is a must see, whether you are interested in religion or not. A lot of churches and basilicas have stunning ornaments but also plain, boring walls. This basilica has intricate designs everywhere, no piece of wall was left undesigned! And the designs are stunning! A must see!

A wonderful basilica with lots to see. Not only the fabulous baroque features, in the main church, but the Crypt of the Grazie, and the lovely chapel dedicated to the two Queens - Maria Teresa and Maria Adelaide. There are a lot of votive offerings; hundreds of military epaulettes, war crosses, etc. from the two World Wars. Well worth a visit
