Church of San Lorenzo Reviews
A minor attraction. Nice architecture without an interesting interior, distroyed by fire. It is the besty part of the duomo. more »
Siamo entrati un po a sorpresa in questa bellissima chiesa barocca e siamo rimasti stupiti dalla sua bellezza e dai colori dei marmi. Veramente unica! more »We entered a little surprise in this beautiful Baroque church and we were amazed by its beauty and the colors of the marbles. Truly unique!
The most unremarkable entrance hides one of the most remarkable interiors I've seen. If you have a chance to talk to a guide, do, because there's a lot of stuff that is not obvious at first sight.
First of all the entrance is totally free. Once entering the church, you should look upwards in order to see one of the most important architectural jewels in Turin! Must see it.
