An icon that once stood in the chapel was venerated for having healing powers, making Santuario della 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.

A really important religious place in Turin , built other a part of the ancient Roman wall
Italy has so many great churches, it's easy to get fatigued with them. Not with this one though. The interior is incredibly interesting. The architecture is also interesting, being a series of smaller areas rather than one huge space. Definitely worth seeing
