"A general view" Piazza Sant'Antonio - Canal Grande Tip by iandsmith

  Generally speaking, a nice place
by iandsmith

This picture epitomises Trieste for me. It shows a splendid church, water and palatial buildings. Pretty much what the town is all about.
The church happens to be the brainchild of Nobile, though his 1808 design wasn't finished until 1842. Sant' Antonio Nuovo is its name and, once upon a time, it used to have a Grand Canal frontage, long since filled in but at least there's still a fountain.
The fresco in the apse, altar pieces and paintings by local artists are worth a look if you get inside past the statues by Bosca.
