Not dog friendly

Great disappointment for this visit to a indeed very beautiful park but the cost is disproportionate to the expectation We traveled 300 km to see hydrangeas in bloom I do not advise and obviously the very limited number of visitors proves me right

Magnificent place! A must see ! Very well maintained English garden. Even if you can only visit the garden and the postern, the castle being private, it is well worth it! View of the sea in the distance!

Duino Castle

Duino Castle was built by the Wallsee family in 1389 on the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. It replaced an older castle from the 11th century. Over time, the Wallsee family disappeared and the castle, after having been used as a prison, became the residence of the Luogar and Hofer.

At the end of the 19th century it became the property of Prince Alexander von Thurn und Taxis from the Czech branch of the House of Thurn and Taxis. It remains with the family to this day with his great-grandson Prince Carlo Alessandro della Torre e Tasso, Duke of Castel Duino the current owner. The castle has been opened to the public as a museum and park.
