Overview

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.

This Royal Church of St. Lawrence was designed by the architect to amaze and delight you. And that is exactly what it did. It is stunning and everywhere you look, you realize the detail of the construction and art. Hidden in area's you expect nothing...More

Inviting and friendly church with a beautiful unique cupola, one of a kind. The only sad thing is, that this church only holds a copy of the Shroud while the original is placed in the Duomo which is closed until 2023 by the decision of...More

The inside of this church is truly fascinating and it is much better than the Duomo of this city. Found at the heart of the main piazza of the city, this church does not look like much from the outside but when you walk in,...More

This is a beautiful church that holds a great deal of history within its walls. Elegant artwork and a beautiful design make it worth a visit when you are in Torino. Most of the major sites are in close proximity and entrance to the church...More

Beautiful baroque church with a unique convex interior design and a Borromini-like dome. There is also an impressive collection of religious paintings.

Little leads a visitor to believe that a church lies within, so plain is the exterior, but inside is an ornate little church designed by a polymath - Guarino Guarini - a philosopher, architect, writer, priest and mathematician. The design is so brilliant that, only...More

All the churches in Torino are free to visit and this one is as stunning as the others. You'll be spoilt for choice and photos, but none of them blur into the others. They're all worth seeing.

Free entry. Next to Palace Real. Surprisingly nice church and the outside does not do it justice and give an indication of the inside. It has links to the shroud- so does get very busy as the Shroud was housed here.

Like many other reviews have said do not let the unimpressive exterior put you off visiting inside. Personally we make a point of being super quiet in all the fantastic churches we visit. Sadly that position appears not to be shared by many other visitors....More
