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

Centrally located church looks unimposing on the exterior. Inside very impressive and home to the famous relic the Shroud of Turin. The shroud is not exhibited generally only on special occasions. Has a viewing area of the shroud repository with video presentation.

This church had a great sense of spirituality about it. It was a place for reflection and the story of the Turin Shroud was certainly very thought provoking.

I found this cathedral to be rather strange. It looks very average from the outside and inside down the middle too. However, the two sides that align the cathedral are breathtakingly beautiful with enormous pillars all the way down to the altar and beautiful gold...More

As we were only staying over for 1 night we just about managed to see Duomo di Torino. Well worth the rush through the city. Next time I will stay for longer so we can have a leisurely time looking around town.

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.
