Turin, a city in the northern part of Italy. Known for being the place where don bosco lived and did his missionary work. The picture above was taken right outside of the city. The northern Italian landscape is very beautiful.
The main attraction in this city is the basilica of our lady help of Christians. The church was built by Don bosco. It was a former safe haven for poor teenagers and children.
This is the square/center for the Basilica.
The whole church was built by a man with little money. This is the original designs.
So finally, I will explain who Don bosco is. He was priest that founded an orphanage for poor childern, mainly abandoned boys. The priest is considered as a saint in the catholic religion. His miracle, according to the catholic faith, was he kept giving food to the needy when his food supply should had ran out. He kept finding food in his bag to give to the homeless, when by logic, there should not been any food left to give out.
Thank you for taking your time to read this post. Next week, we will go to the mountains in Italy. Stay safe and healthy.
Beautiful photographs. Never been to Turin, but maybe on my next Italian trip, I’ll make the effort to go. Thanks for sharing.
No problem! You will enjoy it! The landscape is breathtaking. It feels like i was in California
California is pretty, but I’d much rather be in Italy.
Turin is definitely on my list!! Thanks for sharing!

Such good pictures
We were in Turin (City Centre) last year and posted it on WP. Nice to see the other side of Turin.
Just read your post about Turin. Didn’t know they had an Egyptian museum! It was interesting that Italy had so many Egyptian artifacts.
Thanks for checking my site. Yes they have and it’s just near the Plaza. I believe they are one of the first who became interested in these things.
That’s very interesting! I saw alot of Egyptian artifacts in Rome. There’s some connection there. Gotta love history!
