  • We only found this hidden gem because our bike tour guide pointed out the small blue door in the corner of the square. Apparently the original entrance would have upstaged the palace so the Emperor stopped it from being built. Judging from the interior he was right! We visited several churches during our visit and this was the prettiest. Small in scale and with a stunning ceiling. Our guide said that once a year on the summer equinox light penetrates alcoves to reveal frescoes - you’d need to research this as I haven’t!
  • I felt a perfect peace there that I did not usually have. The natural light that exists in the octagonal structure with perfect symmetry gives the impression that I couldn't taste anywhere else. I recommend you to visit this place if you visit Turin.
