Torino - The Shroud of Turin
The Shroud of Turin is one of the most important Christian relics, and you can see a replica on display in the Shroud of Turin Museum. The actual shroud is only shown rarely, on very special occasions. The museum, however, provides a wealth of information about this relic. The shroud is said to be the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in after he was crucified. Although various tests have not been able to verify this, neither have they been able to explain the image of a bearded man that appears on the cloth. Based on the images on display here, you can judge for yourself whether the image on the shroud is that of Jesus, and you can also learn of the shroud’s long and colourful history.
