Very nice church but with a sombre atmosphere of the shroud behind its protective glass, in a box. You can pause in front of it and reflect on what it is that you see - this is the closest you can get to anything that...More

a magnificent medieval cathedral full of character but especially the world renowned chapel that allegedly contains the Shroud. There were many pilgrims in attendance which led to its importance,

Interesting (and old) cathedral right next to an archeological site with Roman ruins. The name of the church isn’t all that ornate but the side altars that line the cathedral are really impressive. But let’s be honest: the biggest reason to visit is to learn...More

Very strange, but even for a non-Catholic a visit to the duomo is interesting. Main reason is the shroud of Turin that, whether or not it's the real thing, is stored here and in spite of the fact that it cannot be viewed by the...More

This is one of the more plain churches and cathedrals I’ve been in. However you don’t come here for the architecture but to see the shroud...or at least the reliquary box that houses it. For that reason alone this gets 5 stars. Very nice visit

Turin cathedral is smaller than one remembers from other cities, it is famous as a place of celebration of Jesus Christ Shroud.

Not the biggest and certainly not the most impressive, the Duomo church is still well worth seeing and contains a replica of the famous shroud. Free to visit, you should also take in the Diocese museum and tower next door, for which there is a...More

For spiritual reasons this place should be on top must see in Italy. Maybe the cathedral it self not pretty as other churchs in Italy but having part of human history kept there what makes it worth to visit

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.
