Sant'Antonio Nuovo ("Saint Anthon new") is the largest church of Trieste. It is dedicated to Saint Anthon Thaumaturge and was built according to a project by Pietro Nobile in 1825-49 on the same place where already existed a church with that name, therefore it's called "nuovo".
It is built in neoclassic style, with a Ionic pronaos, a large pediment and, at the top, six statues portraying the protectors of the city.
