Full description
Discover the history and mystery behind the Holy Shroud of Turin. Legend says that the burial garment of Jesus's crucified body was transferred to Turin in 1578 by the Dukes of Savoy. But where was it kept before? Did the Templars hide it? Uncover all these secrets on the tour. Just one of the fascinating theories about the Holy Shroud is considered to be the most important relic in Christianity but is rarely displayed. The ancient linen has been preserved in the royal chapel of the cathedral of San Giovanni Battista. Follow the history behind the burial shroud by visiting the breathtaking Chapel of the Holy Shroud, Guarino Guarini’s masterpiece and one of the most famous Baroque buildings in the world. Continue to the Renaissance Cathedral dedicated to St. John The Baptist where the Shroud is kept and displayed for very special occasions only. End the tour with a guided tour of the Museum of the Holy Shroud to answer some of the questions linked to the authenticity of the Shroud, a relic that draws people from all over the world.

    Fabulous personal tour with our guide Carla. She was extremely friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about absolutely everthing to do with the Holy Shroud. The tour was very interesting and Carla explained more history of the City as we walked from the Chapel to the Museum and back. Worth every penny! 5 stars from us.
