Monuments and curiosities

Statues and monuments, buildings and courtyards, commemorative architecture, are the elegant curiosities of Turin and its province. Wandering the streets of Turin and its surroundings it is impossible not to stop off in the terrace of a historic café, discover the baroque art itinerary or the architecture of the Liberty buildings. From the traces of Roman times of Porta Palatina, to the Basilica of Superga, from the buildings to the railings in wrought iron, from the heavy wooden doors to the courtyards of honor, every period has left its footprint in its very own way. Hooking both tourists’ and locals’ attention, there are curiosities like Casa Scaccabarozzi by Antonelli, commonly known as La fetta di polenta, and the Bronze Bull in Piazza San Carlo – tradition claims that stepping into it brings good luck!
