Owner description: 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.

An icon of the city. It used to have "La Santa Sindone", nowadays moved as this church is under restoration. Worth the visit.

You could see why this was the royal church but ther is nothing particulary special about it. Just one on the tick list list as far as I'm concerned

I've seen hundreds of churches and this one blew me away (went back several times). In a city chock full of Baroque, this church is the quintessence. Art everywhere. [And the pastor limits "extra" functions to funerals -- doesn't want to "exploit" it with weddings.] When you look at the outside, you'd never guess how gorgeous the inside it. Its plain exterior was mandated to fit in with the surrounding buildings in the Piazza Real.
