An Evening in Trieste

Today I visited Aquileia and Grado and spent some quality time with the 4th, 5th, and 6th century basilicas there.

The highlight of the day were the two 6th century churches at Grado, but instead of more churches, I’ll show some pictures of my evening in Triesta. Trieste is Middle Europe complete with fin de siècle buildings. Here are some images of Unification Square (Trieste was not part of Italy at the time of unification for folks who care about these things):

And the local tradition of delicious pork sprinkled with horse-radish and served with a side of mustard:
