If you are fascinated by the East or just want to spend a few hours immersed in the beauties of the art of distant countries, this is your place. A fascinating visit that will allow you to discover distant and often unknown cultures.
The Church of the Virgin of the Consolation is one of the oldest places of worship in the city, linked to a Marian miracle. A truly unique gem thanks to its structure and to the Baroque style designed by Guarini and Juvarra.
After visiting the Consolata Sanctuary, enjoy a sip of ‘bicerin’ in the very same place where it was born, the Bicerin. Since it is a very small place you may have to wait a little while, but the wait will be well worth for both the drink and the atmosphere.
Since you are in the area, the Porta Palazzo Market is an obligatory stop. It is the largest market in Europe and it is also the best place in Turin to get a feeling of all the cultures which coexist in this city. Smell all the different scents, fill your eyes and ears with the colours and the sounds of this place. If you are lucky and you find yourself in Turin on the right Sunday, take a look at Gran Balon, the most beautiful second-hand and antique market in the city. If it is not the right Sunday, don’t worry: you can see a smaller version of this market every Saturday.
