  • The church building was entrusted to Bernardo Antonio Vittone, one of the greatest exponents of Piedmontese Baroque, in fact the building's façade, with its soft lines reminiscent of other buildings of Piedmont wave in the same period. Note that the façade was not completed. the Interior is like a "living room" Baroque, elliptical, inscribed in a rectangle. There are eight Corinthian columns, alternating pilasters and topped with a beautiful Dome, lit by a lantern on top. The main altar is dedicated to St Mary Magdalene, pictured in oval altarpiece painted by Giovanni Biscarra in 1825, between furniture are the sixteenth-century wooden crucifix and the bust of Christ by Pietro Canonica.

  • One of the historical Church to visit when you are in Alba.
  • The Church draws much from the outside, with its sinuous shape in red brick. Inside is very collection but, behind the altar, a choir large and very interesting. At this time (2017 Truffle Fair) the choir hosts an installation of Marina Abramovich, another good reason to visit the Church.
