Overview

If you cross the River Po on the Piazza Vittorio bridge, you will find yourself directly in front of the Gran Madre di Dio church. It is a scenographic construction in a circular shape, built between 1818 and 1831 to commemmorate the return of Vittorio Emanuele I to Turin on the 20th May 1814. The church houses the remains of 5000 men who fell in WWI. Note the access staircase with the two statues of Religion and Faith, as well as the the Crucifix and Sacred Heart of Jesus inside. Call ahead for hours of visitation.
