A Rebuilt Baroque Church

Located in the heart of the city, the Church of San Filippo Blacks is the largest religious establishment in Turin. The original church was built in 1675 but collapsed during a French siege in 1705. It had to be rebuilt from 1715-1730. It features Baroque style architecture and in 1823 architect Joseph Maria Talucchi updated the facade to neoclassical style. Among his additions are the medallions on the ceiling, the high altar, and marble floors. These are all worth seeing in addition to the crypt, which dates back to the 1600's. The Blessed Sebastian Valfrè is one of the notable people resting here, including many other important citizens of this time. This church is usually ignored by tourists, and its quiet atmosphere makes for a more authentic stop in your itinerary.
