Both built in the 1600's, the two beautiful churches have come to represent, the the piazza S.Carlo they are on, one of the many symbols ot Turin, and adorn the piazza on its Western side. Cannot miss them.

Two almost identical churches, facing Piazza San Carlo, both built in XVII century. You won't miss them as you'll be walking thru Piazza San Carlo as one of the most important places in Turin.

The Church of San Carlo is beside the Church of Santa Cristina and both are on the Piazza San Carlo. These churches have good architecture and it is a pleasure to pray in both of them.
