Church of the Croce Dorata






The Church of the Croce Dorata works as the funerary chapel of the Municipal Cemetery of the city of Rivoli (Turin) since 1838. The church was erected after a miracle happened in 1680 to Claudio Galasso da Giaglione, who was praying in front of a votive templet depicting the Virgin and was returned the gift of speech. The people, as a thanksgiving for the miracle, built a chapel around the ancient votive templet as it is recorded on the stone plate attached on the façade and dated 1685.

Ciao Pietro: Che bella chiesa della croce d'oro, e il funerale piílla Città di Rivoli. In realtà, Torino, e tutta l'Italia è ricca di monumenti, merita uno sguardo più attento. Dico questo perché ero lì fuori e io so qualcosa. Questo è un bene che Madonna sarà presentato e ha restituito il dono della parola, mentre Claudio Giaglione pregato. Precedentemente vi erano molti miracoli, non so perché non adesso? Beh, posso solo dirvi Io amo i monumenti e tutte le immagini qui presenti. Congratulazioni. Un bacio ed essere felici.

Hola Pietro: Que hermosa la Iglesia de la cruz de oro, y la piílla funeraria de la ciudad de Rivoli. En realidad, Turín, y, toda Italia es rica en Monumentos, Es digna de una mirada detenida. Lo digo porque Estuve por ahí y conozco algo.

Que bueno que la Virgen se le presentara y le haya devuelto el don de la palabra mientras Claudio Giaglione rezaba.
Antiguamente había muchos milagros, ¿no sé porque ahora no?

Bueno solo me queda decirte que me encantan los Monumentos y todos los cuadros que presentas aquí. Enhorabuena. Un beso y se feliz.

Great church!
Croce Dorata means Golden Cross, right (Cruz Dourada in Portuguese)?
Joy
I like its simplicity. At the same time it seems to have withstood the test of time.

Looking forward to the weekend?
