The Duomo Di San Giovanni is Turin's only example of Renaissance architecture. It was completed in 1498 and dedicated to Saint John the Baptist. The Chapel of Holy Shroud was added between 1668-1694 and will be the resting place of the famous Shroud of Turin in the spring of 2010 from 10th April to 23rd May following a long period of restoration to remove pieces of cloth that had been burned in the fire of Chambéry in 1532. The Pope will make a pastoral visit to Turin on Sunday 2nd May 2010.
Piazza San Giovanni is very close to Piazza Castello in the centre of Turin.
