“Newly restored afrescos”

Cappella dei Banchieri e dei Mercanti
Ranked #3 of 422 things to do in Turin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 December 2017

This newly restored chapel opened a couple of months ago exposing hidden afrescos that will amaze you.
Not many people know about this chapel due to the fact that it's located right next to a big church and the entrance as opposed to being located directly on Via Garibaldi is actually inside the entry hall of the building.
Definitely worth a visit.

Not very well known, a hidden treasure. Not always open. There is a guide explaining what the chapel has to offer. It should not be missed, even if you visit turin for other more famous attractions.

It's a very special place, even if not often open. Lot of history and wonderful decorations. Worth a visit.

A chapel built back in 17th century, extremely well preserved. It is one of the many hidden treasures Torino has to offer and perfectly expresses the Piedmontese tradition of non "showing off".
You won't be disappointed :-)

This place has been a stunning surprise for me. It's a baroque chapel with fine frescoes, statues (made of wood but resembling marble) and a big golden crown over the altar. In the sacristy, you can find an interesting perpetual calendar invented in 1831 by the Italian astronomer and mathematician Giovanni Antonio Amedeo Plana. The guide told us that it was studied by a group of Japanese students who said it was the first example of computer in history. The chapel is opened by volunteers on Saturdays afternoon (from 3 to 6 pm). The guide told me that the chapel is usually closed during Summer.
