The old city of Trieste is on a hilltop rather than along the harbor. Like most
places dating from the Roman era through medieval times, defense was an
important consideration in its siting. The Cathedral of San Giusto is mostly
Romanesque in style and not very large by European standards but with some
great Byzantine mosaics. I was lucky to have gotten to the bell tower a few
minutes before noon so got to be present for the deafening noise ...

It was really just a big grassy paddock down quite a steep drive.
