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.

  • Easy to access and well organized old church, They display a copy of the famous shroud. Very nice paintings on left and right halls all framed in detailed sculptures.

  • 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.
  • It was an experience beyond words... just soulful and hauntingly deep! And the work of art that it is speaks for itself. Worth a visit .
