This late 15th century church is the seat of the Archbishop of Turin and is dedicated to St. John the Baptist.It was erected at the site of the original Roman city, and the three churches built at the same site before the current structure. The...More
The chapel heavily damaged by a fire in 1997 has been reopened in its original function of chapel of the royal palace ( the access is now from the first floor of the palace with the museum's ticket and not from the cathedral for free.)...More
The main reason to visit this church is to see where the alleged Shroud of Jesus Christ is housed. There is a special side chapel that has this hroud behind a glass window. The last it was displayed was in 2015. This is a catholic...More
I will preface this review by saying the main reason why I visited Turin was to specifically visit this church because it houses the remains of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. A miraculous cure of a brain damaged young man is attributed to Blessed Pier. I...More
I came here while in Turin with it being a significant attraction known for having the Turin Shroud, it's classic Catholic Cathedral inside despite a lacking exterior in a city renowned for its stunning architecture.
It is a smaller cathedral than what you would expect for a city the size of Turin. It backs on to the Royal Palace and seems diminished by comparison. The exterior and facade are not remarkable and are somewhat plain. Interior decoration is good in...More

No, there is no ticket to enter the Cathedral unlike in some Duomos in Italy. Also, the Shroud is in the left side, near the Altar as you walk in, from the front doors. This is an old yet beautiful and very solemn church.

the Shroud is only only display at certain times namely every few years as it has to be protected and kept in extremely special conditions due to its age and religious historical value. Yes there is a video to watch in the Cathedral and its very interesting and the Cathedral itself is is lovely to visit and walk around. Its not a big Cathedral, like in some other cities, but it worth visiting if you're in Turin. Also, when the Shroud is on display tickets are sold to see it. You could check the Cathedrals website to see if there are dates of when the Shroud will next be displayed.
