Taken at the Castle of San Giusto, Trieste, Italy

The Castle of San Giusto
On this hill stood a prehistoric “castelliere” (fortified village), later converted into an important town by the Romans.
The medieval fortress was pulled down in 1381 and rebuilt the following century by Frederick II of Habsbourg. Designed on the remains of previous castles on the site, it took almost two centuries to build.
The stages of the development of the Castle’s defensive structures are marked by the central part built under Frederick III (1470-1), the round Venetian bastion (1508-9), the Hoyos-Lalio bastion and the Pomis, or “Bastione fiorito” dated 1630 and the two-floor building which presently houses the “Museo Civico del Castello”, i.e. the town museum.
From the castle walls people can enjoy one of the most magnificent views over the city and its gulf.
