Piazza Goldoni, 34122 Trieste TS, Italy

  • Distance : 224
  • Attraction :

Piazza Goldoni is just a square that you will pass at your destination and it is San Giusto castle. The square is full of restaurants, shops, and a newsagent (selling transport tickets).Someone called this square the center of the city. Certainly from a geographical point of view it is. But perhaps more than a geographical center, Piazza Goldoni could be seen as a border square between the popular part of Barriera and the other part of the historic center. The first with its intense coming and going of mostly elderly people who come and go from shops, from the covered market, from Grassilli, from the many "bars" where to refuel. The second with a more youthful and less "triestin-popular" face. More working, but also more lounging. Piazza Goldoni is the border between these two Trieste, a marshalling yard, a station where you can get off the bus to go to one or the other Trieste, to embark and return home. From here pass the main (in the sense of crowded) bus lines of the city.

The structure develops on a circular tank with an external radius of 6.50 meters, with a bottom covered in polished concrete grit, and a central body with a pentagonal obelisk with constructions, made of reinforced concrete and covered with slabs of Orsera marble. At the base of the obelisk there is a second pool, concentric to the first, from which five illuminated waterfalls descend and flow into the main pool. Destined to have a short life (it should have been dismantled at the end of the celebrations), it survived inoperative the Second World War and the subsequent post-war events. The last functional restoration was in 2006, while previously it dates back to the early 1970s.

On a steep hill above the city center, lies one of the two famous Trieste castles. It was built by the Venetians during the Middle Ages on the site where the Romans still had their fortress. During the struggle for power, it was overthrown in the 14th century, to be taken over by the Habsburg ruler Friedrich II. restored in the second half of the 15th century. Later, it was additionally strengthened, so even today it looks massive and powerful. In front of it are old pillars and stones, dating back to Roman times. The castle itself is not particularly interesting from the inside, so tourists mostly visit it because of the great view of the city and its surroundings. If you are not interested or you just need a view that you can enjoy on the way to the castle.Enter the castle via a wooden drawbridge that passes over a small moat to an arched vestibule. This leads to the Cortile delle Milizie, a vast courtyard surrounded by imposing bastions and towers. Here I want to thank you for your time and attention. I really hope that you enjoyed the tour of Trieste and that everything you have seen so far has led you to come to this beautiful city again. What I can suggest to you is to rent a car and visit the Castelo del Mare, which is some 20 km away from the city center. It was my pleasure to guide you through the history of Trieste. See you on one of the next tours! All the best! Ciao, apresto!
