The Cattedrale di Santa Giovanni Battista, Torino's main cathedral located in the heart of the historic centre, is a stunning symbol of the city's faith and devotion to Catholicism. The striking Baroque and Gothic structure dates back to the 12th century, with many additions and alterations that have been made over the centuries. From a historical point of view, the Cathedral has a significant place, as it was the site where the Turin Shroud was kept for centuries. During its lifespan, it has witnessed various ceremonies, from state events to coronations. Visitors to the Cattedrale can appreciate the intricate interior, made up of stunning works of art, gilded altars, and tombs of Sardinian kings. On its façade, the magnificent rose window stands out, designed by Bernardino Cametti, a part of the sculpture that decorates the front of the building. The Cathedral, open until 6 PM daily, is a must-see when touring this Italian city.
