Nice church, but very dark inside. A lamp would not be out of place. Half the church was arranged as an exhibition of various vestments from the church culture. Nice to see, definitely worth it. Nice atmosphere further in the church, to take a moment of peace for yourself.

Always open from 09.00 to 18.00

Open to the public. Standard Catholic church though not as "luxurious" as others.

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.
