Piazza Unità d’Italia (Unity of Italy Square in English) is the main square in Trieste, a seaport city in northeast Italy. In this picture you can see the dominating building of the square, the Municipal building, most certainly reminiscent of Centeral European design being a throw back to the days when Trieste was a port in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A must see while in Trieste – in fact its very hard to miss it.

The Cathedral of San Giusto (Saint Justus) stands on the hill of the same name and is the main church of Trieste, northern Italy. During the ninth century, two sacred buildings were built: a small cathedral smaller and the Sacellum (Shrine) of San Giusto. In the fourteenth century, the cathedral and the sacellum were merged into a single building by demolishing the right aisle of the cathedral and the left aisle of the sacellum to create the nave of the current Cathedral of San Giusto. The façade is adorned with a delicate and elegant Gothic rose window. The solid, squat bell tower incorporates the remains of the Roman propylaeum.
