They say that Turin is the city of black and white magic; find out more on this terrific mysteries and legends tour!
Turin Mysteries and Legends Tour
Alongside Lyon and Prague, Turin makes up part of Europe's so-called black and white magic triangle. In fact, esoterism experts claim that the darkest point of this trio is the Piazza Statuto in Turin. That's exactly where we'll meet at 9 pm to start to uncover the city's most curious and interesting mysteries and legends. Don't worry though, black magic hasn't actually been practised in the city in centuries. Although the dramatised performance included on this tour will make you feel otherwise!
In this square, you'll find what are disputed to be the Gates of Hell, although sceptics try to deny this. What you will definitely see, however, is the Frejus Tunnel monument. This memorial is dedicated to the construction workers who died when building the namesake railway tunnel... but is it a coincidence that there is a statue of Lucifer himself on it?
Not far from here we'll head to the Piazza Castello gardens, which are home to many other stories and legends. Here, you'll see the statues known as the angles of Turin, but did you know that they hide a secret message? You'll find this out and more!
The final stop on this mysteries and legends tour will be outside the Gran Madre di Dio church. Next to this temple you'll be able to admire some very special sculptures, in fact, legend has it that one of these sculptures even holds the clue to find the Holy Grail! From here we'll take a bus and return to the initial meeting point.
