A VISIT TO MIRAMARE’S CASTLE

written by Bridget Brackett

Ostuni città bianca

If you plan to visit Trieste you can certainly not miss the splendid Miramare’s Castle: overlooking the Gulf, the castle is a perfect blend of harmony of nature and exceptional architectural ability.Miramare’s Castle has been built by order of Maximilian of Austria, surrounded by a park of 22 hectares with a large variety of plants and today houses a famous museum open to the public, where you can visit the rooms inhabited by Massimiliano and those reserved for guests.

In the park of Miramare which surrounds the building there is a smaller castle, known as the "Little Castle", that, while the main castle was under construction, has been built to be the residence of the emperor and his wife,.

A visit to Miramare Castle is certainly a good choice, especially in a sunny day: a personal suggestion is not to miss this trip outside the city and dedicate it at least half of your day.
