It is just a little chateau ? but the history of this place is really nicely documented and how life was in the old days. A lot of films and animations are shown. Some of the rooms are dedicated to exhibitions and on our visit they showed old world maps ?. Children 7-17 1€, 17-25 4€, Adults 8€ - worth every cent :-)

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.
