The Sanctuary of Maria Consolatrice, linked to the cult of the Virgin, has ancient origins. Originally dedicated to Saint Andrew, it already existed in the 10th century. The bell tower and possibly the underground chapel of the Madonna delle Grazie, still remain from the medieval era. Guarino Guarini is responsible for the radical plans for extension (1678) and Filippo Juvarra for the addition of the oval presbytery (1729).

The Neo-Classical façade dates from 1860 and further enrichments from the period 1899 - 1904 were carried out under the guidance of Carlo Ceppi. The interior space is configured in order to enhance the sumptuous main Juvarra altar on which can be found two adoring angels in white marble by Carlo Antonio Tantardini and an image of miracles performed by the Consolata.
Piazza della Consolata, 2, Turin
