Piazza San Carlo was designed by Carlo di Castellamonte in 1642 and completed in 1650. In the middle of the piazza you’ll find the equestrian statue of Emanuele Filiberto (known to all as “El Caval èd brons”), sculpted by Carlo Marocchetti in 1838. The porticoed buildings surrounding the piazza give space to numerous bars, cafes, and restaurants.

In my opinion, this magnificent Piazza is the center of Torino's life. Surround by beautiful buildings were old cafeterias exist side-by-side with high fashion stores, it is mainly a pedestrian place which adds a lot to its charm. All walkways are located beneath arches, so...More

The Piazza San Carlo is near the River PO which is a landmark for itself and the view of the mountain and the Cappuccini Church is beautiful. I Would suggest spending the time in one the restaurants with a Top view to the mountains.

This is one of the many squares of Turin. They all seem to blur together after you have been to a few

The square is on a Via Roma route to the royal place, Piazza Reale and the Turin Dome. Exclusive boutiques on both sides of the square alternate with popular mass products shops
