An icon that once stood in the chapel was venerated for having healing powers, making Santuario Basilica La Consolata a pilgrimage site for centuries. The original, humble structure grew over the years with each generation of monks. Inside the church, Rococo decorations reflect the light, making the marble and Solomonic columns gleam. Sculptures commemorating various saints fill the chapel and adorn the outside. Many of these hold special significance for the city of Turin's history. The saints represent the various modes of life in the city, from trading to health.

    Very beautiful Basilica. Masses are regularly celebrated and open to all. Decorations, baroque style, are beautiful. And, very incidentally, when it's hot in Turin, this place is a haven of freshness.

    When we got in we expected just another church, but it was not the case. It is master piece of architecture, but at the same time a very relaxing espiritual place. Not to be missed!  more »
