Santa Croce Church

The church, designed specifically to give adornment and recognition to the square, was designed by F. Juvarra and completed in 1730. It is designed more for visibility in the skyline of the homogeneous city, as a sort of placeholder, than for its reception capacity and place of prayer. The military hospital (almost 600 beds) was located between 1700 and 1800 in the large adjoining convent, also due to the nearby barracks. Today it is the Turin headquarters of the Romanian Orthodox cult.
