Duomo di Torino e Cappella della Sacra Sindone hold much religious significance. The cathedral where the shroud rests dates back to the late 15th century. The shroud is scheduled to go on display in 2015. Approximately 4.5 m long by 1 m high (14.5 ft by 3.7 ft), the shroud contains a faint impression of a man who suffered crucifixion. It remains one of the most studied and controversial objects in human history, as many believe the image to be of Jesus Christ.

  • The shroud of Turin is stored in this cathedral and u can see the storage encasement. The should is not normally. available for public display due to its delicate state, so don’t expect to see it.

  • An exceptional church with direct access from the Royal Palace and public church. Here the Shroud of Turin is encased in the alter. It is easily accessible for public viewing. In Bologna, researches created a three dimensional view of Jesus using the imagery from the Shroud. See photo. For those who follow the documentaries regarding the Shroud, it is truly amazing to be in its presence.
  • Beautiful is all that comes to mind. Appreciate how it connects the cathedral to the royal palace and art museum. The contrasting colors of black and white marble make this room very distinguished.
