The church is nice but the real attraction is the observation platform in front of it that allows for great views over Turin. It's a bit to walk but it worth the effort. more »
This is a great place to get a superb view right across the city. You can get a bus from the city centre to the base of the hill which leaves you with a steep-ish but reasonably short walk up to the church. The church itself is also beautiful with a stunning Madonna and Child forming the backdrop to the alter.
Probably the best view of the city and of the Alps in the distance. It's absolutely stunning, specially at sunset. Although it's at the top of a hill, it's quite easy getting to the top. Definitely recommend the visit.
